A compact (35 × 35 × 1.6 mm3) decagonal shaped ultrawideband (UWB) antenna that gives wide impedance bandwidth of >139% (2.3-12.8 GHz), 1.7-5 dBi gain, good time domain characteristics and average efficiency >88% is proposed. UWB operation in the proposed design is accomplished by using truncation at the ground plane. Simulated results are in good agreement with the measured results.
