Abstract
In order to design a microstrip patch antenna at first the designer is to select the substrate material and it’s thickness. So, if the designer has a clear conception about the effect of changing substrate material and it’s thickness on the performance of the antenna, it will be easier to design an antenna. Appropriate selection of dielectric material and it’s thickness is an important task for designing a microstrip patch antenna. This paper represents that how antenna performance changes when we vary substrate material and it’s thickness. The designed inset feed rectangular microstrip patch antenna operates at 2.4GHz (ISM band).
