The research presents a compact antenna consisting of a simple radiating patch and a slotted radiating patch based on a DMS structure. It is required to have a tunable notched behavior in the antenna to avoid interference of Wi-Fi, Wi-MAX, WLAN frequency as it comes under ultra-wideband (UWB) designated band. Also, a coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed will be used for UWB monopole antenna in the patch. A DGS structure is used for the notch characteristic to fit the entire antenna into a compact area. The measured results for the proposed antenna provide a notch at 2.4 GHz. The designed CPW ultra-wideband antenna sized of 30 × 30 × 0.8 mm3, operates for the frequency band between 1 and 10 GHz. © 2017 IEEE.
