Abstract This paper presents conformal design of CPW (coplanar waveguide) fed compact antenna operating at 2.5 GHz which caters to the class 7 4G LTE band. The proposed antenna is electrically compact having dimensions of 23 x 20 mm2 with forward gain of 1.69 dBi. Also, a conformal microstrip fed patch antenna operating at 27-29 GHz with the forward gain of 9 dBi is presented. Both the proposed antennas are integrated electrically close by 0.004 λ for minimal physical footprint post integration in a typical smartphone case. The isolation is less than 35 dB. Simulated and measured results are presented.
