This paper exhibits the design and performance of microstrip feed modified cup shaped patch antenna with monopole ground with overall size 32 mm × 28 mm × 1.59 mm. The simulator, which is used for optimization is CST Microwave studio 2014. Proposed antenna renders broadband extended between frequency range of 2.57- 6.57 GHz, with flat gain (close to 3-4 dBi). This antenna may be a useful tool for WLAN, Wi-MAX communication bands and lower as well as median UWB bands.
