The study of the miniaturisation effect on the characteristics of patch antenna using the WCIP method
dimanche 24 mai 2015, par , , , ,
The demand of miniature electronic systems has been increasing for several decades. The physical size of systems is reduced due to advancements in integrated circuits. With reduction in size of electronic systems, there is also an increasing demand of small and low cost antennas. Patch antennas are one of the most attractive antennas for integrated RF systems due to their compatibility with microwave integrated circuits. In this paper, the effects of substrate dielectric constant and particularly the miniaturization of the antenna size on the return loss characteristics of patch micro strip antenna (MSPA) have been investigated using the wave concept iterative procedure (WCIP) method. Accuracy of the present results is compared with previous work which has been done theoretically and experimentally.
