In this paper a broadband planar dipole superstrate antenna suitable for integration with millimeter wave (MMW) transceiver ICs is presented. The dipole is printed on the bottom of a fused silica substrate with a ground plane below. This enables packaging together with a transceiver IC using flip-chip interconnect technology. A 60 GHz dual dipole array was flip-chip mounted onto a coplanar waveguide (CPW) thru line to evaluate the antenna design together with the flip-chip interconnect. In the following measured antenna return loss and far field radiation pattern will be shown and discussed.
