This paper describes a patch antenna with slotted ground to operate at public domain frequency bands. Proposed design has a ground and a patch on the lower and upper planes of the PCB, respectively. FR4 material is used as substrate for PCB having thickness 0.8 mm. Proposed antenna offers a wide frequency ranges from (2.17–2.53) GHz, (3.0–3.72) GHz, and (5.05–6.5) GHz for Bluetooth, WiFi, WiMAX, and WLAN applications. Ansoft HFSS software is used for simulation process of the proposed design.
