Abstract

The parasitic coupling is an inevitable phenomenon in multiband patch antenna for reducing the antenna size. Traditionally, a multiband microstrip patch antenna is fed directly through a direct feed network such as T-junction and quarter wave transformer. In this project, a new parasitic coupled feeding to be proposed for simplifying the geometry of an antenna. A four element microstrip array (5. 2 GHz to 5. 5GHz) to be designed, fabricated and tested. The radiation characteristic of feeding to be simulated using HFSS software.
