The electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure to millimeter-wave (mmWave) phased arrays in mobile devices for 5G communication is analyzed in this letter. Unlike the current cellular band, the EMF exposure in the mmWave band (10-200 GHz) is evaluated by the free-space power density instead of the specific absorption rate. However, current regulations have not been well defined for the mobile device application. In this letter, we present the power density property of phased arrays in mobile devices at 15 and 28 GHz. Uniform linear patch arrays are used, and different array configurations are compared. Suggestions for the power density evaluation are also provided.
