A novel approach to design a microstrip patch antenna is proposed for wide beam, and low profile applications. In this project microstrip patch antenna is structures to compose X-shaped cut on rectangular patch. The need of high data rates for wireless communication becomes more and more urgent, and various solutions have been brought forward. This X-shaped microstrip patch antenna is an excellent design for ultra wide band applications. The proposed antenna simulation is going to be carried out through 3d electromagnetic simulation software called ANSOFT HFSS and fabricated on dielectric substrate FR-4 by using Microstrip line feeding technique. Using Vector Network Analyzer E5071C, the invent antenna is tested and results are to be differentiated with Simulation results. The parameters that are focused here is resonant frequency, return loss, VSWR, Gain and Percentage Bandwidth.
