    Abstract: Antenna systems have an RF connector, a PCB dipole antenna, and a radome. The RF connector provides a direct connection to the PCB and limits PIM. An omni-directional WiFi antenna has a pair of horizontal dipole antennas on a PCB having different wavelengths and same frequency. An omni-directional UMTS dual antenna has a vertical arrangement of two independent antennas on a PCB and has a jumper printed circuit board connecting the RF connector to the upper antenna. Corresponding connectors, radomes, and ways of combining antenna elements on a single PCB are also disclosed. A single frequency omnidirectional antenna includes both half and full wavelength dipole elements. A plus-shaped radome enhances the omnidirectional radiation pattern of the enclosed antenna. A jumper printed circuit board allows independent antennas on a single circuit board without the degradation of internal coaxial connections.

    Abstract: Single band and multiband wireless antennas are an important element of wireless systems. Competing tradeoffs of overall footprint, performance aspects such as impedance matching and cost require not only consideration but become significant when multiple antenna elements are employed within a single antenna such as to obtain circular polarization transmit and/or receive. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide designers of a wide range of electrical devices and systems with compact single or multiple frequency band antennas which, in addition to providing the controlled radiation pattern and circular polarization purity (where required) are impedance matched without substantially increasing the footprint of the antenna and/or the complexity of the microwave/RF circuit interfaced to them, whilst supporting multiple signals to/from multiple antenna elements in antennas employing them.
