Abstract: The proposed paper shows the design and analysis of printed Log-Periodic miniaturized Minkowski dipole antenna. The Minkowski curve is introduced in the linear dipoles enhancing the wider band in desired range of frequencies. Minkowski fractal is applied on 8 pairs of alternate dipoles which are electrically connected with lumped feed. The simulated results are compared with the previously published work and significant length reduction of 44.56 % and bandwidth of 90% is observed. The proposed antenna finds its application in GSM 1800, GSM 1900, Bluetooth, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, IEEE 802.11 a/g/h, WiMax, 4G LTE and broadband communication.
Keywords: Minkowski fractal, log periodic dipole antenna, miniaturized antenna
