DESIGN OF A MICROSTRIP PATCH ANTENNA IN A SILICON SUBSTRATE USING HFSS
The aim of this paper is to design a compact microstrip patch antenna for use in wireless/cellular devices. A typical
cellular phone measures about 14.5 cm by 4.5 cm. Hence the antenna designed must be able to fit in such a cellular
phone. A compact microstrip patch antenna has been successfully designed having a center frequency of 1.9 GHz. The
ground plane dimensions for the patch antenna have been designed to be 31 mm by 40 mm and the patch dimensions
are 22 mm by 31 mm. This is designed and simulated in High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS-9.2) of Ansoft
Design, John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 1997.
