Design of a Square Microstrip Patch Antenna
In recent years, great interest is focused on microstrip antennas for their small volumes, low profiles, good integration, low costs and good performance. With the continuous growth of wireless and mobile communication service and the constant miniaturization of communication equipment, there are higher demands for the volume of antennas, integration and working band. This paper presents a basic square shaped microstrip patch antenna for wireless communications system which is suitable for 8GHz to 11 GHz band operations. These systems may include various combinations of WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave ACcess) and Wireless Local-Area Network (WLAN).
