This paper attempts to assist in navigation through the realm of reported designs on ultrawideband (UWB) antennas through systematization of key design principles and ideas using two methodologies proven in other science and engineering fields. The first one is a classification called “taxonomy” used to categorize key structural components of antenna designs. The second one represents inventive princples of problem solving called “heuristics” used to guide design developments towards likely new concepts through manipulation with grouped structural components and minimization of unproductive traditional trial-and-error efforts.
