The study of Microstrip patch antennas have made great progress in recent years. Compared with conventional antennas, Microstrip patch antennas have more advantages and better prospects. They are lighter in weight, low volume, low cost, low profile, smaller in dimension and ease of fabrication and conformity. Moreover, the Microstrip patch antennas can provide dual and circular polarizations, dual-frequency operation, frequency agility, broad band-width, feed line flexibility, and beam scanning omnidirectional patterning. In this paper we discuss the Microstrip antenna, types of Microstrip antenna, feeding techniques and application of Microstrip patch antenna with their advantage and disadvantages and the benefits of using slots.
