Abstract—From this current paper, 3 separate elliptical slotted ultra- wide band (UWB) antennas are being proposed. These antennas have been designed with a standard PCB design process to be capable of integrating with radiofrequency or microwave circuitry. Two designs were presented in which the initial design comprised a half circular ring radiator and the remaining one considers a half elliptical ring radiator. The third design of the radiator is in the shape of a crescent. The impedance bandwidth of all these presented antenna designs varies from 2.5GHz and reaches to 14GHz with a S11 less than -10GHz. Here, every proposed antenna design also has a consistent radiation pattern across its frequency band of interest. The performance of the antenna is impressive for lower band frequency in UWB system, which differs in a range of 3.1GHz to 5.1GHz. Across the whole frequency band the antenna shows a 10db return loss bandwidth. The antenna is fabricated on RT-duroid substrate and fed with 50 Ω coupled tappered transmission line.
