Design of an UWB Quasi Rhomboid Shaped Element Bowtie Antenna for MIMO Applications
An ultra wideband quasi rhomboid shaped element bowtie antenna design for MIMO applications is presented. The regular dipole antenna and bow-tie shape are modified to a quasi rhomboid shape. This antenna is designed on FR-4 substrate and antenna analysis was conducted by using the Computer Simulation Technology (CST Studio) program. The proposed antenna is realized and experimentally examined, since it is small size, light weight, easy method fabrication and low manufacturing cost. In measurement, it is found that the proposed antenna has a return loss less than -10 dB and impedance bandwidth of 130.93 % (2.4-11.5 GHz) with an isolation characteristic below -20 dB all over the operating frequency.
