Perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) and low magnetic damping are the key factors for the free layer magnetization switching by spin transfer torque technique in magnetic tunnel junction devices. The magnetization precessional dynamics in soft ferromagnetic FeTaC thin film with a stripe domain structure was explored in broad band frequency range by employing micro-strip ferromagnetic resonance technique. The polar angle variation of resonance field and linewidth at different frequencies have been analyzed numerically using Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation by taking into account the total free energy density of the film. The numerically estimated parameters Landé -factor, PMA constant, and effective magnetization are found to be 2.1, 2 × 105 erg/cm3 and 7145 Oe, respectively. The frequency dependence of Gilbert damping parameter () is evaluated by considering both intrinsic and extrinsic effects into the total linewidth analysis. The value of is found to be 0.006 at 10 GHz and it increases monotonically with decreasing precessional frequency.
