A patch antenna array with beam steering capability in one dimension for 60 GHz applications is presented. In this array the phase shifters are liquid crystal based meander lines, each providing a maximum differential phase shift of 38°. The array elements (the patch antennas) are coupled to the microstrip feed line through coupling gaps. These gaps are adjusted in order to uniformly excite the antenna patches. The final design comprises of a 4 × 1 patch array, which is able to scan up to 9° in the E-plane as the bias on the liquid crystal changes from zero to saturation voltage. © 2013 IEEE.
