Abstract

The aim of this paper is to design the Meander line antenna (MLA) for the operating frequency of 3.4Ghz for wireless applications like WiMAX. The tool named FEKO from the product of Altair Hyper Works which is used to design the antenna. Basically, the designing part is done by using CADFEKO and simulated results are shown in POSTFEKO. The antenna was designed on the substrate called FR4 with dielectric constant with anepsilon value of 4 andloss tangent of 0.02 with a thickness of 1 mm. In order to design the proposed antenna, the optimal dimensions of the antenna and the effective di-electric of the microstrip line should not be over then 5 lines. The antenna performance was evolved based on the reflection coefficient of the antenna, VSWR, radiation pattern and return loss. The return loss was measured by reading the S (1,1) port of reflection coefficient and it was founded to be-14db.
