UWB antenna with dual notched characteristics fed by microstrip transmission line is presented in this paper. The tapered connection between the rectangular patch and the feed line is used to produce a good impedance matching from 2.3 to 11.5 GHz. A dual band frequency notches are achieved using U-DGS loaded with lumped capacitors. The first notch frequency band is achieved using DGS to reduce the interference with WIMAX from 3.3 to 3.7 Ghz. The second notch frequency band is also achieved using U-parasitic strip placed in the ground plan to eliminate the interference with WLAN from 5.2 to 5.9 GHz. Lumped capacitors are combined with the slot due to miniaturize the slot size. The size of the resonator is reduced by more than 40% when lumped capacitors are used. The proposed antenna hasVSWR < 2 except the notched bands. The simulated results confirm that the antenna is suitable for UWB applications.
