Abstract

The increasing use of mobile phones has improved the quality of devices on mobile phones so that mobile phones can be of good quality. One of the devices on mobile phones that are needed to be improved is the antenna. The antenna is one key component of mobile phones. Various types of antennas had designed and developed. One of them is a microstrip antenna. In this study, a folded dipole microstrip antenna with a Coplanar Stripline (CPS) structure would design to use an FR-4 substrate and two plates of copper as a transmission medium of antenna based on the Finite-Difference Time-Domain method (FDTD). The silicon patch was added and located between two plates of copper as a switch on the microstrip antenna. Based on the research results, the frequency shift in the microstrip antenna could improve in three ways. The microstrip antenna has formed a folded dipole structure, it has fabricated on Super High Frequency (SHF) spectrum upwards, and it has been made by installing multiple switches. While the research results from silicon are that pure silicon is more sensitive to light energy. However, P-type silicon is more sensitive to electrical energy. In addition, all types of silicon can be conductors at room temperature.
