To accelerate the path towards 5th generation wireless systems, high performance antennas are playing an important role as the interface between the external environment and radio systems. They are required to provide efficient wireless communication of high-speed data, high definition video, cloud applications and so on by future wireless smart devices. There are two sections in this project. The first section is the design, simulation, optimisation and fabrication of a low-cost quasi-Yagi antenna, which can operate at 60GHz wireless band. The second section is doing the basic wireless link performance measurement. Experiments will demonstrate the influence of transmitter power level, antenna gain and transmission distance on received power in 60GHz point-to-point wireless transmission. Furthermore, measurement results analysis will prove that high-gain electromagnetic bandgap resonator antennas (ERA) can improve wireless communication efficiency.
