 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

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
