In this paper, filter and antenna integration is studied to produce a compact device for wireless front-end equipment. Filtering antennas are advanced due to their selectivity performance, represented by a flat gain response. Two filtering antennas are proposed to improve the selectivity using different orders. The first antenna is based on second-order filter and the other on third-order filter. Both antennas are designed to operate at 4.65 GHz for mid-band 5 G application with a bandwidth of 6.45%. The first antenna integrates a rectangular radiator and an interdigital resonator based on second-order filter. It obtained a bandwidth impedance of -10 dB for 300 MHz and a maximum gain of 6.48 dBi. Meanwhile, the second design consists of a rectangular radiator and two interdigital resonators based on third-order filter as the feedline. Having the same bandwidth as the first design, the second design achieved a flat gain of 6.37 dBi in the operational bandwidth. The second antenna design showed better selectivity with sharper gain than the first design. The two antennas were fabricated and measured for validation. The simulation and measurement results showed good agreement.
