High Gain WAT Antenna for 38 GHz 5G Systems





microstrip antenna, high gain, 5G wireless system


The article presents a high gain WAT microstrip antenna designed for 5G communication systems operating in the 38 GHz band. The antenna concerned has a compact structure with dimensions of 5.16×5.05 mm. Rogers RT5880 laminate with a dielectric coefficient of 2.2 and a thickness of 0.254 mm was used as its substrate. The antenna works at a center frequency of 38 GHz and is characterized by a low reflection coefficient of -29.11 dB, a high energy gain of 7.61 dB and a wide operating band of 1.21 GHz (3.18%). The paper presents an analysis of the simulation results and measurements of the device's electrical parameters and radiation patterns.
