A Nonbalancing End-Fire Microstrip Dipole With Periodic-Offset DSPSL Substrate

A nonbalancing microstrip dipole with end-fire capability is presented. The proposed antenna consists of a simple microstrip-fed dipole with a periodic-offset double-sided parallel-strip line (DSPSL) substrate, which is used to replace the balun of a conventional end-fire antenna. The periodic-offset DSPSL substrate exhibits phase shift characteristics and… CONTINUE READING
