This paper presents for the first time the design and performance of a novel integrated dielectric resonator antenna fabricated on a high conducting silicon substrate for system on-chip applications. A differential launcher to excite the TE 01delta mode of the high permittivity cylindrical dielectric resonator was fabricated using the IBM SiGeHP5 process. The proposed antenna integrated on a silicon substrate of conductivity 7.41 S/m has an impedance bandwidth of 2725 MHz at 27.78 GHz, while the achieved gain and radiation efficiency are 1 dBi and 45% respectively. The design parameters were optimized employing Ansoft HFSS simulation software. Very good agreement has been observed between simulation and experimental results. The results demonstrate that integration of dielectric resonator antennas on silicon is viable, leading to the fabrication of high efficient RF circuits, ultra miniaturization of ICs and for the possible integration of active devices.
