Abstract

In this paper, a compact design of antenna array with ultra-wideband (UWB) function is proposed for fifth-generation mobile wireless communications. The array is composed of eight compact modified dipole antenna radiators with directors that have been arranged in a linear form on the top edge of the smartphone mainboard. The operation frequency band of the design expands from 23 to 37.5 GHz, providing more than 14 GHz impedance bandwidth. A Rogers RT5880 dielectric with 0.8 mm thickness, 2.2 dielectric constant, and 0.0009 loss tangent is used as the design substrate. Fundamental characteristics of the designed phased array antenna are studied and good results have been acquired. In addition, the array performance in the presence of user-hand is discussed.
