A hexagonal-shaped fractal antenna with triangular slot for super wideband (SWB) application is presented. The proposed antenna has total size of 20 × 33.4 × 1.57 mm3.The proposed antenna is designed of iterations of triangular slot on a hexagonal metallic patch with tapered microstrip line feed. A combination of semicircular and rectangular shaped partial ground plane is used to achieve a super wide bandwidth from 3 to 35 GHz with bandwidth ratio of 11.6:1. The antenna design, simulation and optimization are performed using IE3D Full Wave Electromagnetic Simulator. The proposed antenna is compact and has stable radiation pattern. The simulation and measured results are compared to demonstrate the performance of proposed antenna. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
