A Feed Network for a Novel E-H Shaped Microstrip Patch Antenna Array
N. Misran, M. Tariqul Islam and K.J. Ng

Abstract:
This research presents a beamforming feed network for a novel E-H shaped microstrip patch antenna array. The broadband microstrip antenna array was developed based on the novel L-probe fed inverted hybrid E-H (LIEH) shaped element design arranged into 4x1 uniform linear array antenna, fed by a feed network. The corporate 4-ways Wilkinson power divider which was fabricated in-house covering the frequency range from 1.83-2.29 GHz (460 MHZ) were integrated to form the beamforming feed network. The beamforming feed network comprises of commercial variable attenuators (KAT1D04SA002), variable phase shifters (KPH35OSC000) and the corporate 4-ways Wilkinson power divider which was developed in-house. The developed 4-ways Wilkinson power divider achieves bandwidth of 22.33% at VSWR 1.25. The measured isolation and insertion loss are 30.72 and 0.32 dB correspondingly. The feed network developed and fabricated in-house has been shown to function well within its design ability.
