Abstract

A high-gain wideband low-profile microstrip patch antenna array is designed and tested. A method for enhancing the impedance bandwidth through the combination of a driven rectangular patch with parasitic elements is proposed. The array, which has 16 elements in a 4 × 4 arrangement, is pasted on a 2-mm dielectric substrate. The impedance bandwidth and the gain of the array is 12% (for SWR ≤ 2) centered at 4.5 GHz and 20 dBi, respectively. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
