Abstract: Today, in the world of wireless communication, the most widely studied area is wireless technology, and communication schemes are incomplete without the prior knowledge of antenna operation. In the final years of the communication scheme, the necessary condition for improving lightweight, combined and cost effective antennas is to be able to maintain high performance over a wide range of frequencies. This technology trend has been concentrated in the scheme of microstrip patch antennas. Today, microstrip patch antennas are widely used in global microwave access interoperability (WiMAX) and wireless local area network (WLAN) applications. This paper presents a new design of a microstrip patch antenna based on WiMAX and WLAN applications. The proposed antenna design uses different frequency bands and operates within a narrow band of the frequency band. This tuned antenna design provides better performance including return loss, voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), impedance matching, gain and radiation pattern.
