Design of Elliptical Microstrip Antenna for Ultra Wide Band Applications
In this paper, elliptical microstrip patch antenna for ultra wide band frequency ranging from 3.1GHz to 10.6GHz has been suggested. The design of the antenna focuses on increasing the bandwidth by using an elliptical patch so that many applications can be covered on a single patch antenna. The antenna operates over an ultra-wideband frequency as allocated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The proposed antenna is designed on FR4 PCB having size 55x56x1.6mm. The antenna exhibits a good VSWR and return loss over the entire frequency range.
