Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present a compact coplanar waveguide (CPW) fed switchable UWB antenna as an antenna filter with adjustable notched frequency bands. Novel miniaturized tunable resonators are also presented to achieve notched bands. The antenna is made tunable in notched frequency bands without any modification in the basic structure. These stopbands are made tunable just by varying values of the capacitors according to our desired applications. The antenna structure is very compact having overall dimensions of 24×30.5 mm2 with partial ground plane.The proposed small size, variable, low cost and low weight antenna with good propagation characteristics will pave the way for UWB wireless communication applications.
