A microstrip antenna is basically a low profile antenna with a number of advantages over other antennas like small in size, light weight, inexpensive to fabricate. A microstrip antenna with aperture coupled feeding technique is used here as it is one of the most important method for exciting microstrip antenna and its analysis has been shown here. In this paper, a simple aperture coupled microstrip antenna at a frequency band of 5.75 GHz to 5.85, is presented. Here, substrates with thickness of 1.57mm is used, both the substrates having same thickness are considered. In this, the optimization of antenna design is done using 3D electromagnetic simulator. This antenna is useful for wireless communication.
