In this paper, design and analysis of Compact co-Planar Waveguide (CPW) fed Ultra WideBand (UWB) slot antenna is presented. The proposed antenna has a simple structure consisting of a rectangular slot and a triangular patch at the anterior portion of the feed that acts as tuning stub of the antenna. The analysis of the proposed antenna is performed by using MoM based electromagnetic solver, IE3D. The designed antenna is fabricated using FR4 substrate with 1.6 mm thickness. The return loss and standing wave ratio of the developed antenna are measured and compared, which shows that measured result is in good agreement with simulation.
