Patch Antennas

Rectangular, elliptical, triangular, and circular probe-fed patch, inset-fed rectangular patch, e-notch and h-notch patch

Microstrip or patch antennas find uses in applications that require low profile antennas without compromising performance. Most patch antennas are directly designed as printed circuit boards (PCB). The structure consists of a conducting patch and a ground plane between which is a substrate that can either be air or a dielectric such as Teflon.

All antennas in this catalog support AI-based tuning and analysis. For more details, see design and AIAntenna documentation.
