Abstract

A millimeter-wave series-parallel patch antenna array is presented, in which the dual-slot feeding structure is handily implemented using the intrinsic field distribution of TE20 mode in substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW). One 28 GHz patch antenna element fed by the TE20-mode SIW is first designed, achieving a 10 dB impedance bandwidth of 10.2% and a simulated peak gain of 6.48 dBi. Based on the antenna element, a 4 × 4 array with a compact series-parallel differential feeding network is developed accordingly. Due to the novel compact SIW-based series-parallel feeding network, the antenna array can achieve superior radiation performances, which is the highlight of this communication. The simulation and measurement results of the proposed antenna array are in good agreement, demonstrating a performance of 8.5% impedance bandwidth, 19.1 dBi peak gain, symmetrical radiation patterns, and low cross-polarization levels (-30 dB in E-plane and-25 dB in H-plane) in the operating frequency band of 26.65-29.14 GHz.
