Design of Microstrip Antenna for WPAN Applicationsby Applying Modified Smith-Chart Representation

Settapong Malisuwan and Jesada Sivaraks
Abstract—The use of frequency-dependent (lossy) Smith-chart representation is proved to be an effective method for rectangular microstrip antenna design. This research manifests the feasibility of a well-integrated presentation of the dispersion (lossy and lossless) characteristics of a microstrip line by adopting modified Smith-chart format. The effectiveness of this model is demonstrated via a model of microstrip patch antenna for Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) applications. The outcome of proposed algorithm within this research is scrutinized and compared with the experimental results in past literatures. The proposed model within this study is suitable for use in computer-aided microstrip design and is pertinent since it conforms to the modern day requirements and trends of modern computer-aided microstrip antenna design and RF integrated circuit (RFIC) design.

Index Terms—Microstripantenna, WPAN, modified smith-chart , and CAD.
