Abstract: This paper discusses design and analysis of reconfigurable antenna for millimeter wave communication. The proposed antenna model resonates at frequencies between 25- 34GHz using PIN diode. Return loss and voltage standing wave ratio achieved less than -10dB and 2 respectively. Resonating frequency changed by varying the bias of PIN diode switches. Antenna size is reduced using meander lines in the patch compared to the existing micro strip patch reconfigurable antennas. The proposed antenna is designed using Electromagnetic simulation software with appreciable gain.
