One of the key innovation factors of fifth generation communication ( 5G ) is the extension to millimeter wave (mm-waves) frequency region in order to meet the demand for exponentially increasing data rates.
However, steerable high gain antennas are required to overcome the increased path loss at mm-waves and to ensure exact beam alignment between communication partners.
In this work a steerable antenna array for base station application has to be designed in order to enable possible illumination of one 90 -sector with an overlapping beam scheme.
For the array elements excitation with variable phases and amplitudes dedicated chips are provided that need to be wired / connected properly.
