An antenna structure is presented for the front end of the 60Ghz transmitter. The solution takes into account the presence of the silicon chip that comprises the silicon-based transceiver and the interconnections between the transceiver, the antenna and the printed Circuit Board (PCB) for assembling and mounting operations. A 4.7-GHz bandwidth (@VSWR=2) is expected with a maximum gain of 6.7dBi @ 60GHz. This gain value is achieved by efficiently coupling a non resonating structure with a Dielectric Resonator (DR), The integration configuration includes flip-chip and interconnection structures.
