In this paper, an inverted suspended circular patch with square slot design is proposed for broadband circular polarized antenna. The antenna was designed based on L-probe technique and air gap of 10 mm distance between substrate and copper ground. L-probe technique is used in this antenna design to feed the 50 Ohm SMA connector signal through the feedline to the antenna structure. The proposed antenna had been designed and simulated by using computer simulation technology (CST) software. This antenna design is targeted for wireless local area network (WLAN) application which operating frequency at 2.4 GHz. Antenna performances in term of return loss, resonant frequency, bandwidth, gain, axial ratio, directivity, total efficiency and radiation pattern at the design frequency are analyzed. Result of simulation show that the proposed antenna achieved axial ratio below 3 dB which is 0.62 dB with return loss -35.60 dB at targeted frequency. Comparison result of simulation and measurement show that the return loss bandwidth (RLBW) and realized gain of the antenna at 2.4 GHz frequency decreases from 556 MHz to 354 MHz with gain 7.76 dB to 4.54 dB. However, the proposed antenna covers a wider bandwidth of 2.4 GHz where both simulation and measurement bandwidth is over 350 MHz.
