Abstract

This letter presents a low-cost dual-band circularly polarized microstrip antenna for GNSS applications. The dual-band operation is achieved by stacking two metallic patches on a conventional FR4 substrate. The designed antenna can cover GPS L1 band, BeiDou B1 band, Galileo E1, E5b bands, and GLONASS G1, G3 bands, through a bandwidth of 1.118 GHz-1.215 GHz in lower L band and a bandwidth of 1.55 GHz-1.61 GHz in the upper L band. In order to achieve a wide axial ratio bandwidth, a dual-feed mechanism utilizing a capacitively coupled probe feeding scheme is incorporated. The overall size of the proposed antenna is 100 mm by 100 mm. The measured results indicate an excellent correlation with simulations.
