Meander line antenna (MLA) is an electrically small antenna. Electrically small antennas pose several performance related issues such as narrow bandwidth, high VSWR, low gain and high cross polarization levels. In this paper overview on properties, parameter consideration and design of MLA is proposed. The proposed antenna is designed for USB based application. The antenna performance parameters are optimized to achieve reasonably wide impedance bandwidth, high gain, VSWR < 2 and an omni directional radiation pattern. Moreover, the current distribution and the effect of the ground plane size on the altered MLA are discussed in this paper.
