Abstract
This paper presents the design of a compact
microstrip fed printed slot antenna to be used for dual-band
wireless applications. The slot structure of the proposed
antenna is based on a modified Sierpinski triangle which is a
variant of the conventional Sierpinski gasket of the first
iteration. The slot structure has been etched on the ground
plane of an FR-4 substrate with relative permittivity of 4.4
and 1.6 mm thickness. On the reverse side of the substrate, a
50 ohm microstrip line feed has been etched. Modeling and
performance evaluation of the proposed antenna have been
carried out using a method of moments based
electromagnetic simulator, IE3D. Simulation results shows
that the proposed antenna over perform that with the
conventional Sierpinski gasket slot based slot of the same size
and iteration level in that there is no need for a tuning stub to
extract the dual-band response. Furthermore, results show
that, varying the aspect ratio of the antenna structure results
in return loss responses with dual-band behavior covering a
wide variety of wireless communication applications below 6
GHz. Besides the compact size and the simple structure, the
antenna offers reasonable radiation characteristics in the two
bands.
