Abstract / Description

quency range is growing rapidly as UWB systems offer high resolution imaging capability and high data rate transmission in the order of Gb/s that is required by the next generation of wireless communication systems. Hence, over the recent years the research and development of UWB antennas has been widely reported in literature. The main performance requirements sought from such antennas include: (1) low VSWR of <2; (2) operation over 7.6 GHz from 3 to 10.6 GHz; and (3) good overall radiation characteristics. Significant size reduction and low manufacturing cost are also important criteria in order to realize a cost‐effective and miniature system. Other desirable requirements include compatibility and ease of integration with RF electronics.
