Abstract:
This paper presents a hybrid design of Sierpinski Carpet and Minkowski antenna for wireless applications. The hybrid antenna is designed, simulated and fabricated on an FR4 substrate with thickness 1.6 mm and dielectric constant 4.4. The dimensions of antenna are 45 x 38.92 x 1.6 mm3 which operates at various frequencies 3.43 GHz, 4.78 GHz, 6.32 GHz, 8.34 GHz and 9.64 GHz, and can be used for WiMax, C-band applications, Point-to-point Hi speed wireless communication and X-band (satellite Communication) applications. The measured results are also compared with the simulated ones which are in agreement with each other. Ansoft High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) is used to design and simulate the antenna.
