A compact chip inductor loaded microstrip patch antenna for multiband application is proposed. The antenna is fabricated on a substrate of dielectric constant 4.4 and thickness 1.6mm. The proposed antenna is of circular geometry with a circular patch of radius 7mm surrounded by four different inductors which are connected to small rectangular metal patches. The obtained resonant frequencies are 2.28GHz, 2.82GHz, 3.96GHz and 5GHz. Optimization of the proposed antenna along with simulation and experimental results are presented.
