Design of Half Circular Disc Printed Monopole Antenna for Ultra Wide Band and Super Wide Band Applications
In this paper, a half-circular disc PMA (Printed Monopole Antenna) for SWB (Super Wide Band) applications is presented. The dimensions of the substrate is 40x40x1.7mm. The antenna is printed on Rogers RT5880 dielectric material. The antenna VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio) has less than 2 between 2.7 and 50 GHz. The antenna S11 has less than -10 between 2.7 and 50GHz. The antenna has a maximum gain of 12.4dBi. The BW (Bandwidth) of the proposed antenna is about 47.3 GHz. The antenna covered the WiMAX ((Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network), X band, Ka band, Ku band, 4G band, and the band of 5G (Fifth Generation) at the same time with nice gain and radiation efficiency. The radiator of the proposed antenna designs from a half-circular disc, rectangle, and triangle. The antenna has a partial ground plane. Three slots are etched in the ground plane for better impedance matching, two are circular slots and one is the rectangular slot. The antenna design is simulated in CST microwave studio 2016. The antenna has good radiation efficiency, other parameters such as VSWR S11, gain, and radiation pattern are discussed in detail.
