5G mmWave Beam Steering Antenna Development and Testing
Paper i proceeding, 2019

mmWave frequencies offer unprecedented capacity but also new technical challenges. Current solutions typically adopt integrated PCB antennas, however they still face issues when it comes to coverage, power consumption and cost. Instead, we present a SG mmWave antenna platform demonstrating a different approach based on Gapwaves technology. The proposed design is an integrated all-metal multi-layer assembly, offering low-loss feeding, high-gain subarray, high-Q filters and exceptional thermal handling. To support these claims, active measurement of beam steering, EIRP and temperature are presented. Results from this small demonstration unit are very encouraging and show performance challenging that of much larger systems.
