Microstrip Antenna: Design Aspects
The rapid growth and demand of wireless based applications for commercial and personal communication increases the demand of microstrip antennas with the advantage of being low cost, low profile, small size, capable of being integrated with VLSI design. However microstrip antennas have some inherent limitations i.e. narrow bandwidth, low gain, low efficiency, low power handling, radiation from feed. In order to meet the miniaturization of portable equipments in wireless communication the size of microstrip antenna also needs to be reduced along with improvement in other limitations for practical applications, BW (BandWidth) of MSA have to be increased.
