Abstract

In this paper, a novel multiband phased array antenna with endfire radiation pattern is designed at millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequency bands for 5G mobile applications. The proposed antenna element is a compact quasi-Yagi with a modified dipole driver to generate multiband operation, arranged on low-loss RO4003C materiel. The antenna array achieves excellent performance and covers wide frequency ranges of (24.15-29.8 GHz), (36.2-50 GHz) to support 5G NR bands; 26, 28, 39 and the new allocated 48 GHz. The array can exhibit a maximum realized gain from 8.4 dBi to 11.8 dBi. The radiated beam can be steered to cover wide scan angles by varying the phase shift and fulfilling beam-scanning applications.
