Performance Comparison of Cotton and Silk Substrates on 1.575 GHz Frequency Textile Antenna
Keywords:Antenna bending, Cotton substrate, GPS L1, Silk substrate, Textile antenna
Textile antennas are currently being researched and developed so that they can be integrated into clothing. In this paper, two textile antennas with cotton and silk substrate are presented. The antennas operate at GPS L1 frequency, which is 1.575 GHz. This paper discusses the effect of antenna parameters on free space and on-body conditions, and the effect of antenna bending. Based on simulation and measurement results, the parameter values obtained indicate that the antenna can operate properly at a frequency of 1.575 GHz and is safe to use on the body.
