The patch shape is similar to and different parameters like return loss, VSWR, gainalong Θ, Ø directions, radiation pattern in 2-D and 3-D, axial ratio, E and H Field Distributions, Current Distributions aresimulated using HFSS 13.0. The measured parameters satisfy required limits hence making the proposed antenna suitablefor BLUETOOTH applications in 2.4GHz band.Keywords: Coaxial fed, Bluetooth, FR4 1. INTRODUCTION solar cells is required to achieve desired shape during fabrication. Monoplole[12], printed monopole[21]-[26], The BLUETOOTH technology provides short range of dipole[11] antennas improve the bandwidth to a greaterwireless connections between electronic devices like extent. But, monopole antennas are of large size andcomputers, mobile phones and many others thereby difficult to build and integrate. Printed monopole antennasexchanging voice, data and video. The rapid increase in also have numerous advantages like low profile, smallcommunication standards has led to great demand for size, easy integration but has disadvantage of low broadantennas with low real estate, low profile and size, low impedence bandwidth and low omnidirectional radiationcost of fabrication and ease of integration with feeding pattern. The dipole antennas have large input impedence.network.
