A 50? asymmetric coplanar strip fed monopole antenna is being presented for multiband applications. The proposed antenna resonates around 2. 4GHz, 4. 78GHz, and 5. 5GHz and offers a very wide bandwidth of 1. 77GHz (4. 53GHz - 6. 3GHz) defined by 10dB return loss covering four bands i. e. 4GHz C, IEEE802. 11b/g, IEEE802. 11a and HIPERLAN2. The multiband characteristic of the antenna is a result of various meandered strips' width excited in the radiating structure. The uniplanar design, simple feeding technique and compactness makes it easy for the integration of the antenna into the circuit boards. Details of the antenna design and simulation results are presented and discussed.
