Abstract
In the present paper a detailed study of a new compacted hexagon microstrip patch antenna using fractal ground plane and shorting pin is presented. The design process starts by a simple hexagon patch antenna fed by a microstrip line and simulated in the frequency range of 3.1GHz-10.8GHz. The fractal geometry used here is Sierpinski carpets method. Three iterations have been done and the third iteration gives best performance. The miniaturization strategy is performed in two stages. The first stage, a third order of the Sierpinski carpet is applied to the ground. Inserting a shorting pin linking the patch to the ground constituted the second stage. Both the stages are analyzed and compared, Sierpinski carpet the gives best output. The performances are analyzed in terms of return loss, directivity, gain, and radiation pattern.
