This letter discusses a miniature low profile ultrawideband (UWB) spiral. The antenna is miniaturized using a combination of dielectric and inductive loading. In addition, a ferrite coated ground plane is adopted in place of the traditional metallic ground plane for profile reduction. Using full-wave simulations and measurements, it is shown that the miniaturized spiral can achieve similar performance to a traditional planar spiral twice its size.
