In this paper, a printed Yagi-Uda antenna with an integrated balun is presented for WLAN applications. The planar directive antenna is designed to operate at 2. 4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. An integrated balun in the form of microstrip-to-coplanar strips (CPS) transition is used to feed the antenna. The substrate material used is FR4 of dielectric constant 4. 4 and thickness 1. 6mm. The proposed antenna design presents measured bandwidths (RL? -10 dB) of 2. 37 – 2. 42 GHz and 4. 78 – 6. 17 GHz for VSWR < 2 and with moderate gain of 4 – 4. 5 dBi.
