An antenna array using in-package bondwire to perform beamforming for 60GHz applications is presented. 1 mil gold bondwire designed to resonate at 60GHz was employed as an antenna array to provide smaller area and a cheaper way to manufacture it. The overall size of the bondwire antenna array on a CMOS chip is 1×3mm2 and its radiation pattern shows fair agreement with simulation results.
