A planar millimeter-wave shared-aperture array antenna is proposed and designed in this paper. By composing the substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) and the stripline, the K-band antenna is embedded inside the Ka-band antenna to achieve a smaller size and a low profile by sharing an aperture. The Ka-band antenna radiates through the parallel slot pairs on the surface of the SIW cavities with horizontal polarization, while the K-band antenna radiates through the butterfly-shaped slots with vertical polarization, which are also designed on the surface. Then the two array antennas can radiate by sharing a common aperture with high isolation. To verify this idea, a prototype of an 8×8 shared-aperture array antenna has been designed with center frequencies of 19 and 30 GHz and fabricated using multilayer printed circuit board (PCB) technology. The measurement results show that the −10 dB impedance bandwidths in the K- and Ka-bands are 7.73% and >20%, and the corresponding isolations are higher than 60 and 44 dB, respectively. The proposed shared-aperture antenna has a small footprint, a low profile, and high isolation, and is a promising candidate to design compact millimeterwave wireless systems.


摘要:本文提出并设计了一种毫米波平面共口径阵列天线。通过集成基板集成波导(SIW)和带状线激励网络,将K波段天线嵌入至Ka波段天线内部。通过共享辐射口径减小天线尺寸,降低其剖面高度。所设计的Ka波段天线通过SIW腔体表面的一对平行缝隙辐射水平极化波,而K波段天线通过SIW腔体表面的蝴蝶结形缝隙辐射垂直极化波。两个波段的阵列天线可以共享物理口径进行辐射,且在两个频段都具有很好的隔离度。为了验证以上设计思想,我们设计了一款中心工作频率为19 GHz和30 GHz的8×8共口径阵列天线,并采用多层印刷电路板(PCB)技术进行加工制造。实测结果表明,该天线在K波段和Ka波段的−10 dB阻抗带宽分别为7.73%和大于20%,相应的隔离度分别高于60 dB和44 dB。所提出的共口径天线具有小尺寸、低剖面和高隔离度的优点,可应用于小型化毫米波无线通信系统。
