Abstract

This paper presents two new designs of MIMO dual band coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed-slot antennas operating in the 5G frequency band (28 and 38 GHz). The first antenna is an XX MIMO antenna and the second antenna is an XY MIMO antenna. Simulated results for the S-parameters are presented for the two antennas using HFSS. Measured results are also presented for the return loss and gain with both results showing good agreement. The current distribution, group delay, envelope correlation coefficients (ECC), and diversity gain, are also presented for both antennas. The two antennas are fabricated on a substrate having dielectric constant εr = 10.7 and substrate thickness 0.635 mm. The size of the antenna is 4.4 mm x 4.1 mm x 0.635 mm.
