Computer Aided Design of Microstrip Antennas
Published in John Wiley and Sons
Pages: 35 - 64
This chapter compiles some essential computer aided design (CAD) formulas derived using the cavity resonator model for common microstrip radiators in various configurations. A basic microstrip radiator is a conducting patch printed on a grounded dielectric substrate. Unlike a microstrip line, a radiating patch is preferably printed on a low permittivity substrate for higher radiation efficiency. The chapter defines resonant frequency of a circular microstrip patch (CMP), a rectangular microstrip patch (RMP) and an equilateral triangular microstrip patch (ETMP). The input impedance of the microstrip patch is complex and involves a resistive and a reactive part. The chapter describes radiation characteristics of the microstrip patch, and feed reactance of a probe‐fed microstrip patch.
