A type of telecommunication technology called an ultra-wideband (UWB) is used to provide a typical solution for short-range wireless communication due to large bandwidth, low power consumption in transmission and reception. Printed monopole antennas are considered as preferred platform for implementing this technology because of its alluring characteristics like light weight, low cost, ease of fabrication, integration capability with other systems, etc. Therefore, a compact size an ultra-wideband (UWB) printed monopole antenna with improved gain and efficiency is presented in this article. Computer simulation technology microwave studio (CSTMWS) software is used to build and analyze the proposed antenna design technique. This broadband printed monopole antenna contains a jug-shaped radiator fed by a coplanar waveguide (CPW) technique. The designed UWB antenna is fabricated on a low-cost FR-4 substrate with relative permittivity of 4.3, loss tangent of 0.025, and a standard height of 1.6 mm, sized at 25 mm × 22 mm × 1.6 mm suitable for wireless communication system. The designed UWB antenna works with maximum gain (peak gain of 4.1 dB) across the whole UWB spectrum 3–11 GHz. The results are simulated, measured and debated in detail. Different parametric studies based on numerical simulations is involved to arrive to the optimal design through monitoring the effects of adding cuts on the performance of the proposed antennas. Therefore, these parametric studies are optimized to achieve maximum antenna bandwidth with relatively best gain. The proposed patch antenna shape is like a Jug with handle that offers greater bandwidth, good gain, higher efficiency, and compact size.
