We present the simple and accurate closed-form expression to compute the directivity of a circular microstrip antenna on the thin and thick substrate of any relative permittivity. The present expression (PE) is useful for the readily computation of directivity by a calculator and therefore, useful in interactive CAD of antenna by an antenna designer. Copyright SBMO.
