A small and compact ultra-wideband (UWB) aperture antenna with extended band-notched design is proposed. The antenna is composed of a rectangular aperture on ground plane of a printed circuit board and a fork-like exciting stub. The presented co-planar wave guide triple-fed antenna is easy to be applied with RF and microwave circuitry for low manufacturing cost. The antenna is successfully designed, implemented, and measured. A compact aperture area of 12.5 × 23 mm2 is acquired with promising performances, including broadband matched impedance and stable radiation patterns. The correlation between the mode-based field distributions and radiation patterns is discussed. Extended from the proposed antenna, one advanced band-notched (5–6 GHz) designs are also presented as a desirable feature for UWB applications.
