Abstract: In current study, compact active Ultra Wide band (UWB) antenna ranging from 3.1GHz to 10.6GHz, extendable up to 13GHz with dimensions of 32mm x 36mm x 1.6mm is designed, and its radiation characteristics are presented. Radiating aperture of antenna is provided with two J-shaped slot cuts. PIN diode as a switch is implanted on these two slots in parallel position. During the switching operation of PIN diodes, the operating frequency of proposed antenna is altered (Reconfigured) by notching the band spectrum.
