The matching network of a Microstrip Patch Antenna at 10.65 GHz was designed and developed using the software Advanced Design System (ADS). ADS is powerful software for designing microwave electronic circuits. The Microstrip Patch antenna thus developed was tested at 10m Far Field Antenna Anechoic Chamber and Momentum Simulation studies of the same was carried out using a Network Analyzer that can analyze signals in GHz range. The Microstrip patch antenna is a low-profile antenna that has a number of advantages over other antennas-it is lightweight, inexpensive, and easy to integrate with accompanying electronics.
