Abstract: In this article the radiation performance of coaxial feed dual band dual print microstrip patch antenna using Electromagnetic simulation tool IE3D (Integral Equation Three-Dimensional) and CST-MWS (Computer Simulation Technology Microwave Studio) is offered and discussed. The attempt is made to compare the antenna parameters such gain, impedance bandwidth and radiation pattern from both the Electromagnetic Software. It is observed that both the software has their own pros and cons. However, the features available from the CST make it more feasible in comparison to IE3D. With the presented geometry a wide impedance bandwidth 5.62GHz (1.86-7.48GHZ) with sustained gain is achieved. The antenna radiation parameters are also found as desired. A brief comparison of various EM software is also given for the interest of the readers.
