A low cost general architecture for a substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) series-fed dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) array, formed by two different slot polarizations, is proposed. In addition, a novel, simple, and generic transmission line (T.L.) circuit model, along with a fast and generic formulation for the new linear array antenna, is developed. The model can be used for reflection coefficient and radiation pattern (gain) calculations. The experimental data from two linear array modules, operating at the millimeter-wave band, are used to verify the simulated results of HFSS and the proposed model results. The measured radiation pattern for a 4 × 1 SIW-DRA array demonstrates a broadside beam with a radiated gain of 11.70 dB over an operating impedance bandwidth of 4.70%. Moreover, the simulated radiation efficiency is more than 90%.
