This paper presents a design of compact elliptical-shaped CPW-fed planer UWB fractal antenna. A novel planer UWB antenna using a fifth iteration elliptical fractal shape is presented in this paper. The frequency characteristics of antenna consist of UWB properties in the range 2.0–16 GHz that corresponds to the impedance bandwidth of 140 %. The antenna has nearly good omnidirectional radiation pattern and peak gain of 4.9 dBi. The group delay profile of the proposed antenna lies within 1 ns. The areas of applications are medical imaging, wireless communication, and vehicular radar.
