Abstract

An Array of 4 x 4 Microstrip antenna is designed and excited by coplanar waveguide (CPW) feed network. To increase the impedance bandwidth of the array, each element of micrstrip antenna array is fed by a modified L-type probe. The CPW feed network provides simple structure by abandoning the traditional air bridges. The design and simulation of the antenna array is done using HFSS (High Frequency Structural Simulator) software. The linearly polarized array exhibits an impedance bandwidth (SWR) of 30% and a gain of around 10 dB.
