Design Analysis of Ultrawideband Antenna with Enhanced Bandwidth

In this paper, a novel ultra wideband antenna with enhanced bandwidth is presented. Experimental results show that the antenna achieves good impedance match from 2 to 14 GHz with the Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) less than 2. From HFSS13 simulations, dimensions of antennas are chosen for better performance. It is shown that return loss of the antenna at solution frequency 7 GHz is less than -10 dB. The antenna is designed on Epoxy FR4 substrate. It covers nearly UWB band 3.1 to 10.6 GHz which is FCC decided. The proposed microstrip antenna is highly suitable for applications of wideband systems.
