patch antenna width - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

 Post subject: patch antenna width
Posted: Wed Feb 16, 2005 1:31 pm 
I am desiging uhf patch antenna, I got little freedom about the width of antenna ( less then 2cm), I cant use more than that. I can change my lenth. Is there anyway i can design this antenna with limited freedom on width.

According to my knowledge if we decrease the width input resistance of antenna increases. can we use matching networks?, what type of networks we can use.

resonant frequency is 915 MHz.

Hi , Dear vamsi,

you hadn't said anything about the high of your substrate. if you have any limitation on it?

three important parameters that effect to the input impedace of microstrip antennas, are the thickness of substrate , it's relative permittivity and width of strip.

if you have limitation on one of them, you can use two others to implement your design.

I hope , it'll be helpful
