Abstract
A novel dual-band substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW) antenna array topology is proposed for operation in the 28 and 38 GHz frequency bands. Four miniaturized quarter-mode SIW cavities are tightly coupled, causing mode bifurcation, and yielding an antenna topology with four distinct resonance frequencies. A pair of resonances is assigned to both the 28 and 38 GHz band, achieving wideband operation in both frequency ranges. Moreover, owing to the exploited miniaturization technique, an extremely compact array topology is obtained, facilitating easy and straightforward integration. The computer-aided design process yields a four-element antenna array that entirely covers the 28 GHz band (27.5-29.5 GHz) and 38 GHz band (37.0-38.6 GHz) with a measured impedance bandwidth of 3.65 and 2.19 GHz, respectively. A measured broadside gain of 10.1 dBi, a radiation efficiency of 75.75% and a 3 dB beamwidth of 25 degrees are achieved in the 28 GHz band. Moreover, in the 38 GHz band, the measured broadside gain amounts to 10.2 dBi, a radiation efficiency of 70.65% is achieved, and the 3 dB beamwidth is 20 degrees.
