TECHNICAL FIELD [0001] The present invention relates to an antenna device for a portable terminal and a portable terminal including the antenna device. [0002]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to an antenna device for a portable terminal and a portable terminal including the antenna device, and more particularly to an antenna device of a portable terminal including a metal frame arranged in a case frame of the terminal and a portable terminal .

2. Description of the Related Art Portable terminals, such as smart phones, mobile phones, tablet computers, navigation systems, and electronic timepieces, can generally be easily carried by anyone and conveniently used anywhere. In addition, in order to enhance the appearance of the portable terminal, a metal frame is often used for the case frame.

However, in such a metal frame, a current flowing to the antenna of the terminal can be induced, which degrades the performance of the antenna, for example, the radiation performance. Therefore, a structure that can apply such a metal frame to the case frame is limited. To alleviate this problem, a method of segmenting a metal frame so that a part of the metal frame works as an antenna is used.

In addition, in the antenna of such a terminal, PCB pattern change, matching element change, or side ground contact point change are used to adjust the resonance characteristics, but other methods except the matching element change require much time and cost.

In addition, when the segmented metal frame is used as an antenna, the adjacent segmented metal frame deteriorates the radiation performance of the antenna.
