Beamforming Network Design Utilizing Node Microstrip Architectures for Dual-Polarized Endfire Millimeter-Wave Antenna Arrays
A node microstrip architecture is proposed for designing a compact Butler Matrix (BM) that is integrated with a dual-polarized endfire antenna array. The node microstrip architecture can be used to form a variety of compact 2*2 port networks including, but not limited to, couplers and crossovers. The optimized compact BM is potentially suitable for use in 5G wireless communication handsets.
