The design and analysis of step impedance resonator (SIR) based, compact and band-notch UWB antenna, to minimize the potential interference between wide-band (UWB) and narrow-band (WLAN), has been presented in this paper. The notched band covers the 5.15 GHz to 5.85 GHz WLAN range. The frequency band has been obtained by embedding a SIR near the radiating patch of the antenna. The empirical relationship between the SIR design and band-notch characteristics has also been included in the paper.

The parametric-analysis by varying the parameters the SIR as well as the substrate has been performed, to observe the optimal performance the proposed antenna. The design and functional simulation of the proposed antenna structure is performed by using HFSS-v14. A close agreement between simulated and experimental results for the proposed design has been observed and presented in this paper. The design and results provide ample justification for compatibility and application of the structure in UWB communication over the entire frequency range.
