This paper introduces the novel Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) antennas for UWB applications. We used two different structures, the first is fed by micro-strip line and the second is a compact coplanar waveguide fed planar slot antenna. These designs are a small on planar antenna. The substrate used is FR4 that have the characteristics following: Permittivity εr = 4.4 Impulse Radio Ultra Wide Band systems (IR-UWB). The frequency central is 5.6 GHz and shows good characteristics for IR-UWB. The radiation pattern and gain are simulated and we compared between the different results we have obtained.
