Characteristics of a two-layer microstrip patch antenna for Bluetooth applications
Lu, Lu & Coetzee, Jacob (2006) Characteristics of a two-layer microstrip patch antenna for Bluetooth applications. Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, 48(4), pp. 683-686.
A double-layer rectangular patch microstrip antenna suitable for Bluetooth applications is investigated. The patch is etched on a separate substrate which is suspended above the ground plane and supported by an MCX connector. The air gap between the patch and the ground plane increases the impedance bandwidth and can be used to tune the resonant frequency. This paper presents experimental results on the effects of various parameters on the antenna characteristics and provides guidelines for the design of such an antenna.
