Truncated Gap Coupled Wideband Rectangular Microstrip Patch Antenna
In the proposed antenna design the gap coupled parasitic patch with truncated corner and reduced size are placed along the non radiating edge of fed rectangular (with truncated corners and reduced size) micro strip patch. A patch placed close to the feed patch gets excited through the air gap; known as a parasitic patch. In the proposed reduced size antenna design with truncated corner and gap coupled patches, there is an enhancement of band width with satisfactory radiation characteristics like directivity, impedance matching, gain etc. Therefore the antenna will give satisfactory results as compared to a conventional rectangular microstrip patch antenna of same design parameters without size reduction.
