Abstract:
This paper presents design analysis of a compact CPW fed Wearable Textile Antenna with Dual Band notched characteristics for UWB applications. The proposed wearable textile antenna is designed on two different dielectric substrates; leather and denim with copper foil as conducting element. The performances of the designed textile antenna are compared on two substrates. Band-notched filtering characteristics are achieved by inserting semicircular split ring resonators on the conducting element. The first notch band is obtained from 2.3 GHz-2.5 GHz for Bluetooth application band, and the second notch band is obtained from 3.3 GHz-3.6 GHz for WiMAX application band. The simulated and measured frequency results show that the antenna has an impedance bandwidth of 1.8-10 GHz and reflection coefficient less than -10 dB, except at the two eliminating bands. The proposed antenna is designed and simulated using Ansys HFSS Electromagnetic Simulator. The prototype of the antenna has been developed on the denim substrate, and its performance is measured and compared with the simulated ones.
