1×8 Em Coupled Dual Band Linear Array Antenna with Point to Multipoint Communication for Millimeter Wave Application
Communication system has changed very much in the past few years and would require a device with low cost,
lower weight and a low profile that could operate at wide range of frequencies with high performance. The
electromagnetically (EM) coupled array antenna is one of the possible solutions which is substitute for wide/multiband
antenna. In EM coupled antenna patch and feed are separated by a substrate and transmission happens through coupling. The
substrate used is RT/rogers-5880 with a dielectric constant of 2.2, tangent loss of 0.0009mm and height of 0.0635mm.The
antenna is simulated using commercial tool Ansys HFSS. Parameters such as return loss, VSWR, gain, and radiation pattern
are taken into account to design and simulate this array. The simulated antenna shows the return loss of -27.33dB for
55.6GHz and -37.02dB for 60.6GHz.
