Planar monopole antennas are extensively used in many wireless communication applications due to their compact size, low weight and ease of integration with active devices. Many antennas with different band characteristics have been designed such as dual, multi, wide and ultra wide band. In this paper simple monopole antenna is proposed for Ultra wide band applications. The antenna is analysed for bandwidth increment with addition of linear multiple steps, mathematical model is also proposed. Simulation results show that the proposed design can be used for UWB applications with reasonable accuracy. Prototype of proposed design with measured results are also presented. Reasonable agreement is found between the simulated and measured results. Details of the proposed antenna design, simulated and measured results are presented and discussed.
