Multi-antenna transmission already plays an important role in current generations of mobile communication and will be even more central in the 5G, due to the physical limitations of small antennas. Path loss between a transmitter and receiver does not change as a function of frequency, as long as the effective aperture of the transmitting and receiving antennas does not change. The antenna aperture does reduce in proportion to the square of the frequency, and that reduction can be compensated by the use of higher antenna directivity. The 5G radio will employ hundreds of antenna elements to increase antenna aperture beyond what may be possible with current cellular technology. This paper presents a new compact broadband planar slot antenna for such kind of wireless communication applications. To develop this structure we have conducted a design based on on the microstrip line combined with a slot technique and a modified geometry antenna in order to enlarge the bandwidth and adapting the impedance thus minimizing distortion in order to avoid high crosstalk and radiation. The proposed antennas have been successfully designed, optimized, miniaturized and simulated by using Momentum software integrated into ADS ”Advanced Design System” and CADFEKO. The final broadband antennas are operating in 9.84GHz on ADS and 9.5 GHz on FEKO respectively with a return loss less than -10dB.
