The present paper proposes and evaluates the feasibility of a new antenna for UWB applications, based on a printed planar antenna configuration, which can conform to UWB specifications being further very compact (0.33lambda × 0.33lambda), low profile, with very pure stable linear polarization and low pulse distortion. Simulated and measured results are presented which confirm the potential of the proposed antenna for UWB applications.
