Abstract

Many of today's portable communication applications require antennas that are compact, broadband, and easily integrable in a big variety of terminal geometries. This paper presents a compact wideband antenna with partially radiating coplanar ground plane. The prototype of the antenna shows a wide bandwidth (VSWR ≤ 2) of 92% (from 3.53GHz to 9.5GHz). The antenna also exhibits maximum gain of 3.5dBi and stable radiation patterns over the whole bandwidth. Nevertheless, in this paper the significance of the ground planes on the operating bandwidth are examined with the help of current distribution and discussed in detail with supporting parametric analysis.
