Abstract

This paper presents a study on 60 GHz CMOS Quasi-Yagi antenna for radiation performance enhancement. The driven element is meandered for size compactness and is fed by a coplanar waveguide to coplanar stripline transition. Moreover, the ground plan was corrugated to serve as the reflecting element. Furthermore, the director was designed from multi-element which led to gain and efficiency enhancement. Finally, the effect of the antenna location on the radiation characteristics was studied. The simulated gain and efficiency are-0.746 dBi and 21.4%, respectively at 60 GHz, and The design has an area of 1 × 0.87 mm2.
