The recent wireless communication field requires an important device like an antenna. These antennas must have light weight, high gain and simple structure. The microstrip antenna has such properties. Microstrip antenna technology was developed from 1970. It gives reliability, mobility, easy transferable and requires small mounting surface. The design parameters like dielectric constant, height of substrate and frequency decides the performance of MCAs. The high value of dielectric constant miniaturizes the antenna size. Microstrip antenna is in form of dielectric substrate sandwiched between two conducting metals.
