A novel 2nd–order antenna with filtering performance and two-octave harmonic suppression is proposed. In order to reduce the effects of the harmonics of the antenna, two types of antennas (PIFA and patch) with different resonant characteristics are integrated into the design. Compared with the traditional patch antennas, this integrated work can not only eliminate the high-order harmonics of the antenna but also improve the in-band bandwidth and frequency selectivity. The 2nd and 4th–order harmonics of the patch are suppressed because of the detuned harmonic performance of the PIFA and patch. The 3rd-order harmonic is eliminated by integrating notch resonators in the PIFA. A prototype works at 2.4 GHz is developed to demonstrate the PIFA-patch integration scheme. Measured and simulated results of antennas agree well with each other, demonstrating good performance of bandwidth, 2nd-order filtering, radiation and wideband harmonic suppression (up to 11 GHz).
