In this paper, the compact CPW-fed slot antenna for WLAN applications is proposed. While the proposed antenna with size of only $20{\times}18{\times}1mm^3$ is consisted of double stub and folded slot, the antenna for 2.4 GHz band and 5 GHz band is designed and fabricated with optimized parameters obtained by simulation. Proposed antenna is fabricated with FR-4 substrate to the thickness of 1.0 mm. By obtaining the measured return loss level of < -10 dB at dual-band, we showed that it is operated as antenna for WLAN applications, and then it is also expected to be usable as antenna for RFID.
