Abstract: A feasibility study of 4G cellular antennas operating in the LTE, GSM, DCS, PCS, and WLAN2400 standards for wirelessly connected eyewear is presented. The target bands are 700-960 MHz and 1.7-2.7 GHz. The antenna designs are capacitive coupling element types, with simple layout printed on one side of the printed circuit board (PCB) substrate. Three different antennas are examined in terms of obtainable bandwidth potential, reflection coefficient, and specific absorption rate (SAR) values considering two human-head models (SAM and Visible Human). The best antenna is -6 dB matched and has radiation efficiencies around 14% and 36% in respectively low and high frequency bands. Based on simulation data, SAR values could be above the 1-g standards.
