A substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) H-plane sectoral horn antenna, with significantly improved bandwidth, is presented. A tapered ridge, consisting of a simple arrangement of vias on the side flared wall within the multilayer substrate, is introduced to enlarge the operational bandwidth. A simple feed configuration is suggested to provide the propagating wave for the antenna structure. The proposed antenna is simulated by two well-known full-wave packages, Ansoft HFSS and CST Microwave Studio, based on segregate numerical methods. Close agreement between simulation results is reached. The designed antenna shows good radiation characteristics and low VSWR, lower than 2.5, for the whole frequency range of 18-40 GHz.
