Abstract

An insensitive planar phased array antenna with high efficiency function for 5G applications is introduced in this study. 64-elements of compact slot-loop antenna elements have been used to form the 8×8 planar array. The antenna is designed on a low cost FR4 substrate and has good performance in terms of gain and efficiency. This property has been achieved by applying a new slot-loop resonators. The proposed antenna is designed to operate at 21-23.5 GHz and has a same performance for different values of dielectric constant and loss tangent. It has high-gain, high-efficiency radiation beams at both sides of the substrate and could be used for mobile base station (MBS) applications. The proposed planar array could be integrated with the transceivers on the low-cost printed circuit boards (PCBs) to reduce the manufacturing cost.
