Abstract


This paper describe properties and design of single element meander line antenna. Meander line antenna (MLA) is electrically small antenna.The meander line antenna is slow wave circuit which consists vertical and horizontal lines uniformly space and connected each other. MLA are widely used in applications where less space require. The proposed antenna is designed for USB application. The antenna performance parameters are optimized to achieve wide impedance bandwidth, high gain, VSWR<2 and an omni directional radiation pattern. Moreover, the current distribution and radiation pattern of MLA discussed in this paper.

Keywords: Meander Line; USB; VSWR
