DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL PATCH ANTENNA FOR 2.4GHz WLAN APPLICATIONS

Abstract
Antenna plays major role in increasing the communication standards to meet the requirements of modern technology driven industries and personal data services. In this paper a novel patch antenna for 2.4GHz WLAN applications presented. The proposed antenna has novel shaped radiator along with modified ground plane with 24?25mm2 overall dimension. The proposed antenna developed on the FR4 substrate with dielectric permittivity of 4.4 and height of the substrate is 1.6mm and loss tangent of 0.002 to achieve lower return loss possible. The proposed antenna simulated in an integral based solver simulation software called CST Microwave studio v2019 and obtained results such as VSWR 1.31, return loss -17.29dB with bandwidth of 130MHz, gain of 3.93dBi and efficiency of 82.96%. This antenna suitable for WLAN applications which uses 2.4GHz resonant frequency.
