Abstract

This Paper presents the design and implementation of a microstrip patch antenna working for concurrent devices. Those devices are particularly targeted in this work whose operating frequency is 2.7GHz and 4.5GHz. Slits on the structure are placed to lengthen the current path on the surface which results in size reduction. The designed patch has compact size (16×14×1.6 mm3) that makes it beneficial for the size constrained electronic devices. To enhance the gain of the antenna, single patch was extended in the form of an array using corporate feed. The gain thus, increased from -4.32dBi to 3.05dBi. Simulations of the presented antenna are carried out using High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) and it is fabricated on FR-4 substrate. Antenna is tested using Vector Network Analyzer (VNA).
