Design of Compact Slot Antenna For WLAN Application
A microstrip fed slot antenna is proposed for wireless local area network (WLAN) operation is designed and simulated using ADS software. Microstrip feed line have been widely used as feeding networks. This paper presents the simulated results of the antenna composed of rectangular patch element embedded with slots, with good imp e d a n c e matching. The overall dimension of the antenna is 25mm × 21mm×4mm . The antenna is characterized by measuring radiation pattern, directivity, return loss and gain. The antenna operates in broad frequency bands from 4 GHz to 6 GHz covering wireless local area network (WLAN) band. The maximum gain of the designed antenna is 6.94dBi at 5.26 GHz frequency band.
