Abstract

In this paper, a radiation-beam switchable antenna phased array is proposed for 28 GHz 5G mobile terminals. Its configuration contains eight elements of discrete-fed T-shaped slot radiators with pairs of directors placed at the top edge of the mobile phone PCB. By implementing and biasing RF switches across the first director of the antenna elements, the radiation beams of the array can be switched from end-fire to broadside radiation modes. The proposed design provides a 2 GHz impedance-bandwidth at 28 GHz. The simulated results show good characteristics of the array for different states of the switches.
