Patch Antennas

Rectangular and circular probe-fed patch, inset-fed rectangular patch

Microstrip or patch antennas find uses in applications that require low profile antennas without compromising performance. Mostly patch antennas are directly designed in printed circuit boards (PCB). The structure consists of a conducting patch and a ground plane between which is a substrate that can either be air or a dielectric such as Teflon.
