This antenna complements the existing pin-fed and edge-fed circular patches which are already in Antenna Magus. Like the Edge-fed circular patch, this antenna is superior to its pin-fed counterpart when microstrip is a better suited feed. Unlike the edge-fed, this antenna is smaller, because there is no quarter wave matching section. For higher impedance antennas, this version will also be realizable on a broader range of substrates (where the matching section of the edge-fed patch becomes too thin at higher impedances).
