Abstract: In this paper, A coplanar waveguide (CPW) ultra-wideband(UWB) antenna is designed, analyzed and simulated by computer simulation technology(CST). The proposed antenna is fabricated on FR-4 dielectric substrate. A microstrip feed line is used to excite the antenna. The ground plane is slotted to improve the impedance bandwidth (BW). Here, a rectangular patch is used as radiator and two corners out of four are truncated to improve impedance matching and UWB characterization. This antenna satisfies UWB characteristics like VSWR<2, Return loss(S11)<-10 dB, Gain<5dB and the antenna is operating within the frequency range of 1.59 to 11.87 GHz range which covers whole ultra wideband i.e. 3.1 to 10.6 GHz range.
