The Goal of this thesis is to design and analyses the filtenna, also called by name filtering antenna. Designed by integration of the filter and antenna. In modern day wireless devices multiple antennas are required to make sure that it can be used for multiple communication services, this not only make the system bulky but the power loss is also more. In filtenna using active components can replace them making a system with low profile, more light weight, and energy efficient characteristics. In this thesis includes the first part which is an introduction to computational electromagnetics and using this analysis of microstrip antenna and second is the proposed design of two microstrip filtennas. Under computation electromagnetics, the Maxwell equation and antenna parameter are analyzed using finite difference method. The design and simulation of this filtenna have been done in ANSYS-HFSS-15 simulation tool. The first filtenna designed structure is the integration of the band-rejection filter with monopole antenna for UWB and X-Band applications. Where after applying the open stub it only passes the X-Band i.e. 8-12 GHz. The second proposed filtenna is for overlay cognitive radio application. This is design using the bandpass filter which is integrated with the antenna. In bandpass filter, the frequency tuning is done by varactor diode. This filtenna resonates at frequency 2.6 to 3 GHz and gain of 2.7dB. The fabrication of second filtenna using bandpass characteristics is done and analyzed the results.
