Abstract: The high path losses experienced by wireless applications at millimeter wavelengths may be mitigated using high gain antennas. The intrinsic small wavelengths makes very attractive to develop solutions with on-chip integrated antennas. However, due to silicon high losses, on-chip antenna elements on RFCMOS technology have reduced efficiency. This paper proposes a solution to obtain an on-chip integrated antenna array based on 3D efficient antenna elements. A 4 element antenna was designed to operate at 57.5 GHz central frequency, with maximum gain of 5.8 dB, and maximum expected efficiency of 45%.
