Abstract

In this letter, a compact dual-band patch antenna based on ball grid array (BGA) packaging for 5G mmWave is proposed. The patch antenna adopts a U-slot and a shorting pin to achieve dual-band operation of 28 GHz and 37 GHz. A single-layer FR4 substrate provides cost-effective features for the massive application. The BGA packaging not only reduces the size but also enables the antenna to be surface-mounted with other components in the same package, which improves the integration. The antenna has been fabricated and measured, and an acceptable agreement was obtained between the simulation and measurement results.
