AbstractIn this work, a beam switched antenna system based on a planar connected antenna array (CAA) is proposed at 28 GHz for 5G applications. The antenna system consists of a 4 × 4 connected slot antenna elements. It is covering frequency band from 27.4 GHz to 28.23 GHz with at least −10dB bandwidth of 830 MHz. It is modeled on a commercially available RO3003 substrate with ∊<inf>r</inf> equal to 3.3. The dimensions of the board are equal to 61×54×0.13 mm<sup>3</sup>. The proposed design is compact and low profile. A Butler matrix based feed network is used to steer the beam at different locations.
