Smaller designs of antenna usually implemented on Wi-Fi modules or navigation system devices which requires smaller bandwidth such as Planar Antenna. There are some antenna application requires bent antenna such as wearable UWB antenna but the substrate used will have some defects after bending and crumpling from time to time. What if the planar antenna is designed that it can be bent and the bending affects the impedance matching and shift in resonant frequency? So, this research aims to achieve the limitation of the planar antenna to be bent at certain angle and given frequency range (1-8 GHz). The planar antenna is designed in the Computer Simulation Technology (CST) Software and the proposed antenna is then bend in the simulation software. The analysis of comparative evaluation for both planar and bent antenna is carried out on different characteristics such as evaluation between S-Parameters & Frequency and evaluation between Voltage Standing Wavelength Ratio (VSWR) & Frequency. The behaviour of radiation pattern for both antennas can also be obtained in the CST simulation.
