A MIMO antenna using dual - band planar antenna with rectangular slothas been proposed. The edge cleaving reduces the width of patch in comparison with conventional rectangular patch antenna designed at the same frequency, while its gain and radiating efficiency is noticeably improved. Measured results of the proposed antenna exhibits resonant frequency at 3.6GHz and 5.48GHz with an impedance bandwidth of 100MHz and 130MHz respectively. Further, the antenna is used as a radiating element for the design of 2-Element MIMO system. © 2019 IEEE.
