Microstrip Rectangular Patch Antenna : Computer Aided Design Methology
Antenna is a means for radiating or receiving radio waves. In addition to receiving or transmitting energy, an antenna in an advanced wireless system is usually required to optimize the radiation energy in same direction and suppress it in others. A micro strip patch antenna also referred to as patch antenna is a narrowband, wide beam antenna fabricated by etching the antenna element pattern in metal trace bonded to an insulating dielectric substrate with a continuous metal layer bonded to opposite side of substrate which forms a ground plane.
