Abstract

A low-cost high-gain and broadband substrate integrated waveguide (SIW)-fed patch antenna array is demonstrated at the 60-GHz band. A single-layered SIW feeding network with wideband T-junctions and wideband high-gain cavity-backed patch antennas are employed to achieve high gain and wideband performance simultaneously. Although the proposed antenna array has a multilayered structure, it can be fabricated by conventional low-cost single-layered printed circuit board (PCB) technology and then realized by stacking and fixing all of single layers together. The simulated and measured impedance bandwidths of a 4 × 4 antenna array are 27.5% and 22.6% for \vert S 11 \vert
