A compact dual-band (2×2) MIMO antenna that operates at 2.4GHz, 3.4GHz and 3.6GHz for wireless local area network (WLAN) and Sub-6GHz 5th generation (5G) applications is demonstrated in this paper. A metamaterial resonator method for improving the isolation is applied by introducing four SRRs resonating at 2.4GHz between the adjusting elements. The overall size of the antenna is 46x54x1.6 mm3. The proposed antenna achieves impedance bandwidths from 2.15GHZ to 2.75GHz and from 3.1GHz to 4.4 GHz for the two bands respectively. The reported isolation is 30 dB around the 2.5GHz band and 20 dB around the 3.5GHz band. The features of the proposed MIMO antenna are illustrated in terms of s-parameters, ECC, TARC, CCL, DG and antenna radiation patterns. These parameters are analyzed carefully and the consequences show that the proposed MIMO antenna is suitable to work in the intended frequency bands.
