Design of Yagi-like printed antenna for WLAN applications
A directive broadband printed Yagi‐like antenna design is presented. We have focused on the 2.45 GHz WLAN band, at which some designs have been carried out. For the design and the modelling processes, we made use of FDTD based in‐house developed algorithms. Some selected prototypes have then been fabricated onto a low‐cost printed circuit board dielectric substrate and tested successfully. Bandwidths higher than 10% and moderate to high (>7 dBi) gains can be obtained this way.
