Abstract: The present techniques are in the form of open literature used to work on selected frequency that has eight and sixteen rectangular patches. The size of it has become compact. Each approach offers different advantages, depending on the required applications. An array antenna is designed and analyzed using series and corporate feed network The FR4 substrate material which is of low cost and easily available in market is used to design the array antenna. An analysis is carried out for both series and corporate feed array antenna in terms of return loss, peak gain, VSWR, directivity, and bandwidth. The antenna’s size is reduced to a very compact size using optimization techniques without degrading the performance characteristics. The design is implemented to work for the multiband applications rather than a single application. Simulation is carried out in HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) software tool. The design proposed is analyzed based on the performance and then it is fabricated.
