A new type of printed millimeter planar antenna with circular polarization for 60-GHz range is proposed. Radiation elements with two open tape rings are arranged in a two-dimensional 8×8 antenna array. Feeding is synphase network with tapered symmetrical (balanced) microstrip in the same plane as the radiation elements. The 8×8 array is fabricated in the conventional technology. To test reproducibility, three samples are fabricated. Measured S11 (VSWR), gain, and axial ratio (AR) are very good and in very good agreement between all three samples: AR<;3 dB about 25% and gain near 20 dBi.
