Low cost high gain antenna arrays for 60 GHz millimetre wave identification (MMID)

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    Low cost millimetre wave modules are needed for emerging 60 GHz applications such as high speed wireless communications and millimetre wave identification (MMID). All applications require high performance antenna arrays to overcome the high propagation losses. Two alternative antenna array designs on a low cost substrate (Taconic Taclamplus) are presented and analysed in this paper. The arrays are manufactured using standard printed circuit board (PCB) technology and have measured gains of 18 dBi and 23 dBi. The operational bandwidths are about 2 GHz around the center frequency. Transmitter and receiver modules based on the developed antenna arrays are also presented
