Abstract: A modified Sierpinski fractal antenna has been designed for wireless applications. The designed antenna exhibits multiple resonance behavior due to the basic attributes of the fractal shapes. The proposed antenna has planar, compact in size and is suitable for various wireless applications. It is designed on the Flame Retardant epoxy board substrate (FR4), which is very easily available, light in weight and has less cost. IFS (Iterated Function System) methodology is accustomed to generate the complex fractal layout using the scripting methodology (.vbs) in the HFSS simulator. Scripting method provides a straight forward solution to generate complicated fractal structures by generating code in MATLAB. The proposed antenna resonates at five different frequencies 1.859 GHz, 3.623 GHz, 5.929 GHz, 9.095 GHz and 9.547 GHz with smart values of return loss up to – 26 dB. It additionally demonstrates good radiation properties and has VSWR values less than two for all resonating frequencies. Radiation characteristics are displayed by 2D and 3D radiation patterns. It also has an low profile value of Gain of 3 dB.
