This paper presents, design and analysis of 2×2 circular micro-strip patch antenna array on FR-4 epoxy substrate material thickness of substrate is 1.6 mm. The design of proposed antenna array, we are using FR4 Epoxy dielectric substrate material. The name “FR” stand for Flame Retardant and type 4 indicates Woven Glass reinforced Epoxy resin. The design of proposed antenna array using probe feeding technique. The 2 by 2 CMSPA array is designed for 2.4 GHz operating or resonant frequency, this 2.4 GHz frequency is suitable for WLAN applications. In order to design a micro-strip 2 by 2 circular patch antenna to operate at 2.4 GHz frequency range, even though there are various simulation software available, such as FEKO, IE3D, CST, HFSS …etc. the design and simulation of 2 by 2 CMSPA using High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) software. The resonant or operating frequency of this paper presents at 2.4 GHz for wireless communications that provides S parameters (return loss), VSWR value, bandwidth and radiation pattern of rETotal, Total Gain and Dir Total and 3D polar plot of rETotal, Total Gain and Dir Total.
