A novel ultrawideband (UWB) printed wide-slot antenna is presented. The design is based on the planar inverted cone antenna (PICA), introduced by Suh. The presented design comprises PICA-like structures, etched from a double-layer substrate. Compared to the original PICA, it is lower in profile, more compact and maintains comparable performance. A prototype integrated in a printed circuit board and fed by a microstrip line is fabricated and measured. The results show that the proposed antenna provides at least 13:1 impedance bandwidth at 10-dB return loss.
