Compact Single Layer CPW-Fed Antenna with Hexagonal Slot for Ultra Wideband Applications
A new compact single layer ultra-wideband patch antenna is proposed. The antenna operates from 3.05GHz to 10.9GHz in the ultra-wide bandwidth range, which is more than the standard, set by FCC (Federal Communications Commission). The planar antenna is printed on FR-4 substrate material with a relative permittivity of 4.3 loss tangent of 0.025. The structure is simple in design, small in size with total dimensions of 24mmx24mmx0.9mm and easy to fabricate. The measurements of the fabricated design compares well with simulation results.
