UWB Coplanar Waveguide Octagonal Antenna

  • 166 Accesses


This paper concerns the design of a new ultra-wideband antenna with an octagonal configuration and reduced size. The prototype has been simulated and designed. It has shown a permissible agreement between simulations and measures and an operation of ultra-wideband from 2.38 to 14 GHz (142 %) for wireless applications.
