Development of a Novel UWB Vivaldi Antenna Array Using SIW Technology
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 90, 369-384, 2009
Abstract
A compact Vivaldi antenna array printed on thick substrate and fed by a Substrate Integrated Waveguides (SIW) structure has been developed. The antenna array utilizes a compact SIW binary divider to significantly minimize the feed structure insertion losses. The low-loss SIW binary divider has a common novel Grounded Coplanar Waveguide (GCPW) feed to provide a wideband transition to the SIW and to sustain a good input match while preventing higher order modes excitation. The antenna array was designed, fabricated, and thoroughly investigated. Detailed simulations of the antenna and its feed, in addition to its relevant measurements, will be presented in this paper.
