A switchable multi-sector antenna for indoor wireless local-area network (LAN) systems in the 60-GHz band has been proposed. The antenna has a pyramidal configuration. Each isosceles-triangular surface of the pyramid has been inclined 30° from the vertical axis in order to cover an appropriate elevation angle range. This antenna excites a right-handed circularly polarized wave to suppress unwanted multipath delayed waves. The low-loss curved microstrip-line feeding has been introduced at the junction between antenna feed lines and monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifiers at the bottoms of the pyramid. Using this antenna, a terminal receiver for indoor wireless LAN systems in the 60-GHz band has been developed
