Multiband Dual-Polarized Array Antenna Module for 5G Millimeter Wave Applications

A wide multiband dual-polarized antenna array is proposed which is featuring minimized housing effects with several design strategies. We present a meandering coupled feed structure for the wideband characteristic. Also the miniaturized multiband millimetre-wave (mmWave) array antenna has been co-designed with beamforming RFIC (BFIC) to maximize the radiated power by considering load-pull effect. It was observed that the measured results showed the outstanding performance compared with a commercialized product with respect to peak EIRP and beam coverage.
