A flexible microstrip antenna printed on a Kapton Polymide substrate, excited by a CPW feed line, and operated in S-band at 3.5GHz, is successfully validated. Unlike previous flexible antennas, this structure offers a very thin thickness (0.16mm) with overall dimensions of 36×25 mm2 that assure an easy integration into clothes and wireless body area network (WBAN) systems. Modeling and performance evaluation of the proposed antenna in term of return loss, voltage standing wave ratio, radiation pattern, and current distribution have been carried out using CST-MW STUDIO Software. © 2015 IEEE.

This paper presents a miniaturized flexible microstrip antenna designed using a Liquid crystal polymer (LCP) material. The developed design consists on a hexagon radiator with two ring slots excited by a CPW feed line, providing an operating frequency in S-band at 3GHz with an important bandwidth of 600MHz. This structure offers a thin thickness (1.6mm) with an overall size of 30×20 mm2 that’s can assure an easy integration into clothes as wearable antennas used for early breast cancer detection. Modeling and performances evaluation of the proposed antenna in terms of return loss, voltage standing wave ratio, radiation pattern, and current distribution have been carried out using CST-MW STUDIO simulator. © Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2016.
