Microstrip Patch Antenna, FR-4 substrate, Pentagonal Shape Microstrip Antenna, Hexagonal Patches


In this paper an antenna with a pentagonal patch design is being prototype on FR-4 epoxy material fed by a microstrip line with a hexagonal parasitic element for bandwidth enhancement. A pentagon microstrip antenna with hexagonal  parasitic elements is designed and analyzed its properties for WLAN application at 2.52 GHz. The pentagon microstrip antenna with hexagonal parasitic element is being analyzed in terms of return loss, gain in dB and VSWR, etc. The experimental result shows a patch antenna is operating frequency at 2.52 GHz, with the return loss parameter is observed as -9.84 dB, and the VSWR ratio is < 2 respectively.
