Abstract: This paper presents the design and simulation of E-shape microstrip patch antenna with wideband operating frequency for wireless application. The shape will provide the broad bandwidth which is required in various application like remote sensing, biomedical application, mobile radio, satellite communication etc. The antenna design is an improvement from Previous research and it is simulated using HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) version 11 software. Coaxial feed or probe feed technique is used in the experiment. Parametric study was included to determine affect of design towards the antenna performance. The performance of the designed antenna was analyzed in term of bandwidth, gain, return loss, VSWR, and radiation pattern. The design was optimized to meet the best possible result. Substrate used was air which has a dielectric constant of 1.0006. The results show the wideband antenna is able to operate from 8.80 GHz to 13.49 GHz frequency band with optimum frequency at 8.73 GHz.
