The growth of portable wireless communication devices has pushed designers to design miniature size antennas. The most prized among miniature antenna choices is the micro-strip patch antenna. These antennas have significant advantages such as low profile, light weight, relatively low manufacturing cost, and polarization diversity. This paper compares the performance of micro-strip patch antenna having different shapes of the patch (square, elliptical, annular ring and triangular) at a frequency of 2.43GHz. To compare and analyze the performance, High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) software was used.
