In this paper, a novel ultrawideband (UWB) antenna with co-planar waveguide (CPW) feed is presented. The antenna is based on an egg-shaped conductor printed on a 30×40 mm2 FR4 substrate of 1.6-mm thickness. Two configurations of the antenna are studied. In the first, the ground plane features a large egg-shaped slot, and in the second, the ground plane is(More)
This paper presents a low-cost ultra-wideband microstrip antenna for wireless communications. Printed on a 40&#x00D7;50&#x00D7;1.83 mm<sup>3</sup> Isola Gigaver 210 substrate, the antenna features a microstrip feed line with two 45&#x00B0; bends and a tapered section for size reduction and matching, respectively. The ground plane is partial and comprises a(More)
In this paper, a low-cost ultra-wideband microstrip antenna is presented. The antenna is based on a 1.6-mm-thick FR4 substrate, is microstrip-line fed and has a partial ground plane. The return loss is more than 10 dB in the 1.9-13.5 GHz frequency range. Possible applications include 3G, Wi-Fi, WiMAX, and UWB applications. The gain results and pattern plots(More)
