Abstract

This paper presents the performance analysis of a LTE (Long Term Evaluation) band microstrip antenna printed on FR-4 substrate material. FR-4 substrate is a composite material of fiberglass cloth with flame resistive epoxy resin binder. It is a popular candidate for material selection in antenna design at higher bands. The proposed antenna contains a rectangular slot on the patch and covers the LTE band 7 (2.5 - 2.7 GHz). It is a cost effective approach to fabricate microstrip antenna for the LTE band 7 which is used in LTE technology throughout the world. The result shows a coverage bandwidth (<-6 dB) from 2.47 GHz - to 2.75 GHz and at 2.6 GHz the maximum achieved gain is 5.2 dB. The S-parameter is used as a comparison matrix for the simulated and fabricated antennas.
