Meander line antenna (MLA) have been designed to operate at 2.4-GHz for WLAN application. Two different designs of meander line antenna are investigated, using conductor line and parasitic. Microwave Office software and CST is used for simulation designed process. The antenna is fabricated on a double-sided FR-4 printed circuit board using an etching technique. Then the design has been tested with the Advantest Network Analyzer. The comparison between simulation and measurement results for the return loss and radiation patterns were presented.
