Abstract: Microstrip patch antenna are extensively deployed in presenteras in applications relating to wireless communication and Telemedicine. Patch antennas are replacing the conventional antennas in many applications, these advancements necessitate Microstrip patch antenna design that can incorporate wide range of specifications. The design of multiband antenna places constrains on the geometrical dimension and antenna parameters specifications of gain and efficiency. To integrate the specifications various design methodologies have been employed. Variations in geometry, inclusion of slots, switching devices, FSS, EBG or PBG structures and Ring resonators have a huge impact on the performance of the antenna. This paper provides a comprehensive review of the design practices employed in a microstrip Patch antenna.
Keywords: Microstrip Antenna, Slots, EBG, PBG, DGS.
