Abstract: This paper introduces a planar 4 × 4 slot antenna array based on Empty Substrate Integrated Waveguide at 28 GHz. The proposed antenna offers reduced weight and fabrication cost as well as relatively feasible integration with planar electronic components. The proposed antenna suggests an operating bandwidth of 7.1% (i.e. 27.4-29.3 GHz) suitable to fulfill demands of 5th Generation (5G) networks with high gain performance of 17.5 dBi with reduced sidelobe level at 28 GHz.
