Wafer Level Antenna Design at 20 GHz

Report No. ARL-TR-4425
Authors: Theodore K. Anthony
Date/Pages: April 2008; 20 pages
Abstract: This prototype design demonstrates that a compact, efficient, and affordable wafer level antenna is realizable and can be processed along with microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology on the same material. A coplanar fed proximity coupled patch antenna was ultimately designed to operate at a frequency around 20 GHz (K-Band) for proof-of-concept. Simulation data is compared with the experimental data for validation of model designs.
