Here, compact CPW fed shaped antenna is proposed for WI-MAX applications. The proposed antenna is designed on 23.5x28.5mm with Flame Retardant (FR4) substrate contains tan∂=0.02, dielectric constant of 2.4 and thickness 1.6 mm. The antenna works at a resonance frequency of 5.5 GHz and designed using IE3D software. The simulation result shows the return loss, VSWR, radiation pattern, efficiency; gain and impedance are well suited for Wi-MAX applications
