IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium. Transmitting Waves of Progress to the Next Millennium. 2000 Digest. Held in conjunction with: USNC/URSI National Radio Science Meeting (Cat. No.00CH37118) | IEEE | Published : 2000


Broadband mm-wave printed antennas for point-to-multipoint (PMP) and point-to-point (PTP) applications based on the Aperture Stacked Patch (ASP) antenna are presented. A linear array of ASP elements is proposed and investigated for PMP applications and a lens coupled ASP antenna is presented for PTP systems. The impedance bandwidth performance and radiation characteristics of the proposed antennas are discussed.
