Wireless communication technologies such as Near Field Communication (NFC) found its way into our everyday life. The antenna structures used in such systems have to comply with several standards to achieve all requirements defined for the specific application. However, in practice there are scenarios for such antennas which are not considered in standards or design guides, but mainly influence the antenna behavior. In the present paper the synthesis of an antenna used for NFC-cards in a contactless payment system under multi-card condition is presented. The optimization relies on the differential evolution (DE) strategy. The computation of the forward problem is based on the partial element equivalent circuit (PEEC) method.
