    Abstract

    Compact and low-cost antenna arrays with beam-steering or beam-switching are needed for emerging millimeter-wave communication systems such as 5G and WLAN at the 60 GHz frequency band. The design, manufacturing and measurement results for a 60 GHz beam-switching Rotman lens integrated with a 4*8 patch antenna array are presented. Active versions with integrated amplifiers are also developed. The presented design can electrically switch between five different beam directions -23°, -12°, 0°, 12° and 23°. Antenna gains of 8 dBi and 26.5 dBi are measured at 60 GHz for passive and active beam-switching Rotman lens antennas.
