A compact (25 × 30 × 1.6 mm3) coplanar antenna suitable to operate on both ultra-wideband (UWB) and global system for mobile communications (GSM) is presented. A coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed antenna for 3.1–10.6 GHz (UWB) along with 1.7–1.8 GHz (GSM) will be useful for high-speed data transfer applications in embedded communication systems. Vital characteristics like radiation pattern, return loss, and bandwidth of the proposed antenna are investigated.
