In this paper, the authors present the use of neural network for the estimation of bandwidth of a coaxial feed rectangular microstrip patch antenna. The results obtained using ANNs are compared with the IE3D simulation and found quite satisfactory. The designed antenna operates in the frequency range of 1.45 to 2.62GHz having the optimum bandwidth of about 57.63%. The antenna is designed using glass epoxy as a dielectric substrate between the ground plane and patch. The simulation has been carried out using IE3D software and the results are compared with neural network tool of Matlab.
