Abstract

Currently, Digital television (DTV) have been adopted in many places throughout the world and is received in different devices types such as laptop computers, portable media players, and smartphones. However, the current antennas used in these devices to receive DTV channels have drawbacks, low performance and non-practical physical structure in many situations.
This paper presents a flexible, lightweight and thin textile antenna for DTV, operating at ultra-wideband (UWB) 200 MHz - 800 MHz and can be embedded in the garment or bag that can be easily transported when folded. The antenna operation was simulated and measured for verifying its performance and, based on the measurement results it was confirmed that the proposed flexible textile antenna has good performance, even in real conditions.
