Abstract: UWB printed antennas are essential part of most of the wireless portable devices. Due to the induction of 4G and upcoming 5G technologies, the demand of higher data rate and larger channel capacity has become a serious issue. Multiple Inputs Multiple Output (MIMO) technology find its place among various existing wireless technologies as a solution to various short comings of UWB like multi path fading. The isolation performance of a previously proposed UWB-MIMO antenna is improved using meandered line parasitic monopole and a reflector composed of hexagonal ring cells. The proposed antenna works over 3.1-10.6GHz band with mutual coupling less than -21 dB. All simulations are done in ANSOFT HFSS 13.0.
