Abstract

This paper presents the first-ever 38 GHz On-Chip Antenna (AoC) in 28 nm CMOS technology. The addition of Artificial Magnetic Conductor (AMC) can increase the antenna’s power gain and radiation efficiency to -1.75 dBi and 22%, respectively, with an occupied area of 0.95 mm × 4.75 mm. This structure is intended for fully integrated single-chip nanometer CMOS transceivers for 5G communication systems.
