Design and Analysis of Yagi-Uda Antenna for WLAN Applications
Keywords:Yagi-Uda Antenna, Microstrip, WLAN, WiMAX,
AbstractThe antenna is supplied by a balanced microstripslotline plus it makes a good utilization of space in order to decrease the feeding network area as well as the size of antenna. Based on the simulation results using the CST Microwave Studio software, the broadband characteristics and directional radiation properties of the antenna are explained. The operating bandwidth is 1.8 GHz–3.5GHz with reflection coefficient less than −10 dB. Compared by the antenna unit, the gain of the antenna array has enlarged by 2 dB. Thus, the proposed antenna has features of compact structure, relatively small size, along with wideband and it can be broadly used in PCS/UMTS/WLAN/WiMAX fields.
