Abstract:

A new feed configuration for microstrip antennas is analyzed. The antenna consists of a single rectangular microstrip patch coupled through a rectanular aperture to a microstrip line on a separate substrate. The report describes the theory which uses a moment method analysis to calculate the antennas input impedance. The analysis was verified by comparison with measurements of patch antennas on a low-dielectric-constant substrate 2.54 and the Feed line on high-dielectric-constant 10.2 substrate. Author
