Patch Antenna, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, IEEE 802.11b/g, 2.4 GHz antenna design


In the wireless communication applications, widespread usage of microstrip patch antennas  due to their advantages such as compactness, easy fabrication and low cost, is pushed forward researchers to develop desired antennas or improve the existing antennas to get desired one. But it is challenging to get desired antennas since microstrip patch antennas have some disadvantages such as low gain and narrow bandwidth.  In this work, elliptical patch microstrip antenna is designed for Bluetooth/Wi-Fi applications. The antenna is designed in the form of slotted elliptical patch and defected ground structure method. Defected ground structure method is applied by using rectangular slots with different dimensions in this work. The proposed antenna is modelled using CST MWS software. Return loss, gain and directivity values are -16.45 dB, 1.82 dBi, and 5.81 dBi at 2.45 GHz, respectively. On the other hand, maximum directivity and gain values are 5.86 dBi and 2.06 dBi at 2.4 GHz, respectively. The bandwidth is 63.1 MHz (2.41 GHz – 2.48 GHz) at 2.45 GHz. According to the results, IEEE 802.11 b/g standards are supported by the designed antenna. So, it can be used for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi applications at 2.4 GHz.
