Abstract: In this letter, a log-periodic dipole array (LPDA) antenna operating between 1.1 and 13.8 GHz with VSWR < 2and an average peak realized gain of 5.2 dB is presented. It is suitable for GPS (L1-L5), PCS, IMT-2000, Bluetooth, WLAN, WiMAX, UWB, and X-band applications. The antenna is designed by introducing a subsectional tapered feedline instead of standard microstrip feeding, which leads to a remarkable lower-frequency performance. The upper-frequency performance of the antenna is improved by adding a feeding point patch. The group delay is also examined for the final design, and maximum 1.5 ns deviation is observed in UWB. By using ordinary and simple dipoles with this modified feedline approach, a superior antenna performance is obtained over a very wide frequency band, and it is validated by the comparison of three fabricated antennas. Additionally, the antenna size is also reduced without using complicated and/or top-loaded dipole structures.
