The article presents a miniaturized monopole antenna dedicated to modern flexible electronic systems. The antenna combines three fundamental properties in a single structure. Firstly, it is characterized by a compact size compared to the state-of-the-art literature with an overall size of 18 × 18 × 0.254 mm3, secondly, the proposed antenna integrates the reconfigurability function of frequency, produced by means of a Positive-Intrinsic-Negative (PIN) diode introduced into the radiating element. Thus, the antenna is able to switch between different frequencies and different modes, making it suitable to meet the ever-changing demands of communication systems. third, the antenna is equipped by the property of flexibility. In fact, a conformability test is performed and has demonstrated the stability of the antenna performance under normal and bending conditions. Finally, in order to demonstrate the potential of the proposed antenna, a comparison between the simulated and measured results is made and turned out to be a strong agreement, making the antenna an excellent candidate for future miniaturized rigid and conformal devices.
