Often described as one of the most exciting developments in antenna and electromagnetic history, the microstrip patch antenna has matured into probably the most versatile solutions to many systems requiring a radiating element. Microstrip patch antennas fall into the category of printed antennas: radiating elements that utilize printed circuit manufacturing processes to develop the feed and radiating structure. Of all the printed antennas, including dipoles, slots and tapered slots, microstrip patches are by far the most popular and adaptable. This is because of all their salient features: including ease of integration, good radiation control and low cost of production.
