Abstract / Description of output

Circular disc monopole antennas are investigated for current and future ultrawideband (UWB) applications. The studied antennas are compact and of small size (25 mm 35 mm X 0.83 mm) with a 50-Omega feed line and offer a very simple geometry suitable for low cost fabrication and straightforward printed circuit board integration. More specifically, the impedance matching of the classic printed circular disc UWB monopole is improved by introducing transitions between the microstrip feed line and the printed disc. Two particular designs are examined using a dual and single microstrip transition. By using this simple antenna matching technique, respective impedance bandwidths (vertical bar S(11)vertical bar
