A broadband probe-fed stacked patch antenna is presented in this paper. The probe is composed of two printed feed-lines and three vias. The feed-lines help of compensating the inductances produced by the vias. Further, with the stacked patch method, the bandwidth of the antenna is enhanced. The simulated results show the antenna has a bandwidth over 40% (VSWR<2) and good radiation performance.
