A novel dual band design of a finite ground Co-Planar Waveguide (CPW)-fed monopole antenna is presented for satisfying Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) applications. The proposed antenna consist of U-shape planar patch element and has frequency bandwidth of 842MHz (1.95GHz-2.79GHz) and 1.08GHz (4.86GHz-5.94GHz) for WLAN and Wi-MAX applications respectively. The basic theory and design are analyzed, and simulation using CST microwave studio commercial software is employed to optimize the antenna properties.
