In this paper, the authors propose a novel approach to reduce size and increase the impedance bandwidth of microstrip UWB (Ultra-WideBand) antenna, when using a thick substrate, so that it can be used for WPAN application, especially for mobile and portable devices. The application of gap-coupled capacitive feeding mechanism for achieving UWB with microstrip antenna has also been proposed. The proposed antenna is capable of operating over a bandwidth (6.4GHz-10.4GHz) as allocated by FCC (Federal Communications Commission), suited for an UWB application.
