The paper presents a study of coplanar waveguide (CPW) fed circular disc monopole antenna for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. A circular disc monopole printed on a dielectric substrate and fed by a 50 Ω CPW on the same layer can yield an ultra-wide -10 dB return loss bandwidth with satisfactory radiation patterns. The performance and characteristics of the antenna are investigated in order to understand its operation. Good agreement has been obtained between the simulation and experiment.
