A wideband 60 GHz end-fire antenna element and a 1*4 array suitable especially for mobile devices have been developed. For the single antenna, the measured |S11| is below -7 dB between 53-68 GHz and below -10 dB in the frequency ranges of 53-59 GHz and 65-68 GHz. The measured gain is 126.96.36.199 dBi between 55-64 GHz. For the array, the measured -10-dB frequency band is from 52 GHz up to 68 GHz. The measured gain is 188.8.131.52 dBi between 55-64 GHz. The antennas are manufactured on LTCC ceramic process and can be integrated with a radio module or flip-chip mounted on a mobile device circuit board. The size of the manufactured compact antenna element is only 3*4*0.27 mm3. The array occupies 12*5.5*0.27 mm3 of space.
