A FUNCTIONAL MICROSTRIP CIRCUIT MODULE FOR ANNULAR SLOT ANTENNA

By Y.-M. Lee, S. T. Wang, H.-C. Teng, and S. Cherng

Full Article PDF (1,406 KB)

Abstract:
A functional microstrip circuit module for annular slot antenna is proposed. This module consists of an annular microstrip line component, two PIN diodes and a DC bias circuit. Reconfigurable circular polarizations can be simply controlled by this functional module. Axial ratio is adjustable by changing the clip angle of the notch made by the annular microstrip line component. Simulated and experimental results have shown good impedance bandwidth for return loss and antenna gains in circularly polarized states.
