For the requirements of ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna, we designed a meandered-line antenna with fractal PBG structure, which can completely cover all the frequency segments of UWB system. (3.1 similar to 10.6 GHz). The size of the antenna is minimized greatly, only 30 mm x 32 mm x 0.8 mm. The simulated results show that for VSWR less than 2, the working frequency segment of the antenna is 2.91 similar to 11.53 GHz, at which the lowest return loss value S(11) is -17.17 dB. Meanwhile, the antenna bandwidth is up to 8.62 GHz absolutely and 119.39% relatively; the frequency multiple bandwidth is up to 3.96 GHz. Considering the engineering processes, the influences of dielectric constant epsilon(r) and thickness of circuit board on the antenna's performance are particularly studied. We also discussed the fractal PBG structure in detail, including its size and arrangement regulation. At last, the contrast analysis on different radiation characteristics of the antenna while being sticked on various materials has been done to validate the function stability.
