During recent years, various research teams have developed 60-GHz chipset solutions, using both BiCMOS and advanced CMOS technologies. However, for the 60-GHz market to flourish, not only low-cost RFICs are required, but also cheap antennas and package solutions. In order to address these two last issues, we present the design of a Tx-Rx antenna-module using industrial high-temperature co-fired ceramics (HTCC) substrate for millimeter-wave (MMW) large-volume consumer applications. The antennas are integrated within the module. Measured realized peak gain is above 6 dBi over the 57-66-GHz frequency band.
