  • This paper presents the design of a triband antenna that can be electronically configured to
    operate at different frequencies. The proposed antenna is design to operate at sub-6GHz
    bands at 2.45 GHz (ISM, Wi-Fi, and WLAN), 3.3, 3.5 & 3.9 GHz (WiMAX), and 4.1 & 4.9
    GHz (4G & 5G). This is achieved by connecting two open-ended stubs to a modified triangular
    patch radiator using PIN diodes. The antenna"s performance was optimized using a 3D
    electromagnetic solver and its performance was verified through measurements. Moreover,
    the conformal analysis done on the antenna shows that the proposed technique can be
    used in moderately flexible wireless devices without compromising the antenna"s gain, radiation
    efficiency and radiation patterns. These characteristics makes the proposed antenna
    applicable for various wireless communication systems and devices.
