Development and Performance Study of Microstrip Patch Textile Antenna
Based on analyzing the theory of microstrip patch antenna, the article simulates the specification of the antenna in the frequency of 1.575 GHz. The flexible textile antenna has been designed by structure design of three dimensional woven fabrics and manufactured on the ASL2300 rapier sample loom, with conductive fiber and polyester filament as materials. After testing by the Agilent 80533D Network Analyzer, the characteristic parameters have been discussed, such as the Return Loss, Voltage Standing-Wave Ratio, Band Width and so on. The results show that the antenna has good reflection properties of electromagnetic and can be used in microwave transmission.
