This paper proposes the design of an Ultra-wideband antenna covering the entire UWB spectrum. The antenna geometry contains a rectangular stepped patch, FR-4 substrate, and uniquely truncated partial ground plane. All the designs, simulations, and optimizations for the proposed work are done with the help of ANSYS Electronics Desktop 2020 R2. The design process uses characteristic mode analysis (CMA) and parametric analysis. The performance of the proposed antenna is reported with the help of the reflection coefficient curve, voltage standing wave ratio, and smith chart. The designed antenna offers an impedance bandwidth of 7.73GHz (3.04-10.77GHz) for return loss <-10dB.
