A printed log-periodic dipole array (LPDA), operating between 3 and 6 GHz and fed with a coplanar waveguide, is presented. The antenna has been designed starting from Carrel's theory, optimized using CST Microwave Studio 2012, and then realized. The comparison between simulated and measured results shows that the proposed antenna can be used for broadband applications in the whole operating frequency band (3-6 GHz), with a very good input matching and a satisfactory endfire radiation pattern.
