4bstract-with the rapid development of bluetooth wireless communication, it's highlighted now to applying Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems(MEMS) technique in the Radio Frequency(RF) field to manufacture broadband bluetooth antennas. The lOdB bandwidth and efficiency of the micromachined Bluetooth antenna designed in this paper are more than 1 1 % and 68% respectively, the length is less than 1/10 wavelength. The alternating direction implicit finite-difference time-domain (ADIFDTD) method for a full three-dimensional (3-D) wave presented is used for modeling and analyzing the micromachine antenna for the first time. Numerical simulation results are compared to those using the conventional 3-D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. I t is more efficient than the conventional 3-D FDTD method in terms of the central processing unit time if the size of the local minimum cell in the computational domain is much smaller than the other cells and the wavelength.

cell size in a computation domain. In this paper, we first adopted the method of the alternating direction implicit finitedifference time-domain (ADI-FDTD) method [6] for a fLtll three-dimensional (3-D) wave to Yee's staggered cell 14' to analyze and simulate the bluetooth antenna. The numerical method is unconditionally stable and is not dissipative. Therefore, the time-step size can be arbitrarily set when this method is used. The limitation of the maximum the time-step size of the method does not depend on the CFL condition, but rather on numerical errors. Associated with practical model, a kind of approximate absorbing boundary condition was developed. Comparing with the full Si antenna and that of paper [7], The antenna in this paper has more wider bandwidth and higher efficiency. Numerical results manifested that the 3D ADI-FDTD method was more efficient than the conventional FDTD method within numerical errors.. 11.

As microwave equipnients require low profile and lightweight to assure reliability, an antenna with these characteristics is essentially required and a microstrip antenna satisfies such requirement. Microstrip antennas have coldformal structure, low cost, and ease of integration with solid-state devices as well as low profile and lightweight. But the microstrip antennas have a narrow bandwidth which is about 0.6-3%. In the last decade, many researchers have studied the bandwidth widening technique of microstrip antennas [ 1-31, For a serial of salient features, the microstrip antennas are used widely in the con~nunicationand other applications. The finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method [4] is widely used .for solving problems related to electromagnetism. As the tradition FDTD method' is based on an explicit finitedifference algorithm, the Courant-Friedrich-Levy (CFL) condition [ 5 ] must be satisfied when this method is used. Therefore, a maximum time-step size is limited by ninimum

integration with other components, silicon wafer ( E,. =11.7) was selected as a layer of microstrip substrate. Between the ground plate and the wafer there is a layer of air ( E , .=1),. which could suppress surface wave induced in the wafer substrate, as a result, the efficiency and the bandwidth of the antelma were increased, and the radiation pattern improved. while by setting a short wall at one end of the patch, the antenna was greatly miniaturized.

For E , component, the numerical formulation of the ADIFDTD method for a full 3-D wave is presented as follows. The electromagnetic field components are arranged on the cells in the same way as that using the conventional FDTD method. These formulations are available for homogeneous lossles medium and for using nonunifomi cells. The calculation for one discrete time step is performed using two procedures.

The response value of the frequency domain can be calculated by Fourier-transforming the time domain value. As the microstrip feed-line is an open stub, the nlicrostrip antenna is a 1-port circuit. So the reflection coefficient SI I of the microstrip antenna is

C. Setting qf absorbing Boundary conditions The field computation domain must be limited in size because the computer can not store an unlimited amount of datum. Several absorbing boundary conditions (ABCs)[8] are developed nowadays. Mur ABCs and superabsorption boundary conditions are used in this paper respectively. For different reflection characterization manifested along whose direction the electromagnetic wave propagated, Now we will discuss which ABCs should be selected for top, side, front and rear surface individually. In the rear surface (k=G), the first order Mur ABCs are set. Electromagnetic waves are propagated along +z direction, the electronic field component ( E , = E 2 = 0 ) satisfies the one-way wave equation:

where V,(t) is a reflected voltage, Vi(t) is an incident voltage, and F is a Fourier transform . From the calculated reflection coefficient, voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) can be calculated as

NUMERICAL RESULTS

For reaching the match of impedance, there are some offsets for microstrip feed-line. In fig.2, Let Ax = Ay = 0.25mm, Az = 0.125" , the domain of total computation is 60 x I 00 x 40 . In microwave circuit analysis, Gauss impulse is generally selected as an excitation for smoothness in time domain and easy spectrum width setting. The width of gauss pulse is T = I 5 p s , Assume that the time delay to = 3T = 45p.s ,

The percent bandwidth of the antennas was determined from the impedance datum. For ease of notion, the bandwidth refers to percent bandwidth that is normally defined as percent BW = [ ( f r 2 - , f , . l ) / f,.]xIOO% ( I O ) where ,f,.is the resonance frequency, while f . , and ,f,.* are the frequencies between which reflection coefficient of the antenna is less than or equal to 1/3, which corresponds to VSWRG2. The circle wave loss of antenna measured and computed are shown in Fig.3. from Fig.3, we can find the measured results are in good agreement with computed results by using FDTD method and ADI-FDTD method. The measurements carried out on an Agilent 8720C vector network analyzer show that its resonant frequency is 2.44GHz, The drift between the design and measured frequencies is less than3%. the length of the novel antenna is less than 1/10 wavelength, the relative bandwidth of the antenna is approximately 11%, while that of a conventional microstrip antenna is only 0.6-3%.The efficiency of the novel antenna arrive at 68%. The characteristic parameters such as effective dielectric constant, the characteristic impedance in spectrum domain could be worked out by Fourier transition. Through dealing with the computed datum using MATLAB, The antenna radiation patterns are shown in Fig.4 .

CONCLUSION

A novel shorted microstrip bluetooth antenna has been presented in this paper, it performs excellently especially in ininiatui-ization and bandwidth broadening. it has been proved to suit bluetooth conmunication. ADI-FDTD method was used to model the structure of the antenna. The algorithm of the method is unconditionally stable Thus, the limitation of the maximum the-step size does not depend on the CFL condition, but rather on numerical errors. The fact that there is a good agreement between the ADIFDTD computed values and the measured results or FDTD computed values manifests that the 3-D ADI-FDTD method is iiiore efficient than the conventional FDTD method.
