High gain V-band planar array antenna using half-height pin gap waveguide
Paper i proceeding, 2017

With growing demand for mm-Wave applications, gap waveguide technology introduced many advantageous features compared to hollow waveguides or SIW. Till now several wideband, high-efficiency and highly directive planar gap waveguide antennas have been proposed. Recently, a new form of pins, the so called half-height pin, is proposed for realizing gap waveguide technology. In this paper, a wide-band, high gain, and high efficiency 8×8-element slot array antenna for 60 GHz band based on the new form of pins is introduced. The simulation shows a very good performance of the antenna, with 14% bandwidth of the 10 dB return loss, 26 dBi realized gain and close to 80% aperture efficiency. The antenna has less difficulty in manufacturing because of new pin form and therefore is suitable for the low cost mass production of mm-Wave antennas.
