Abstract

This paper introduces a method to incorporate the bowing curvature on the 3-D models of 60 GHz switched-beam multilayer antenna modules. This allows such manufacturing effects on the fabricated prototypes to be taken into account in the post-fabrication simulation. The curvature is introduced on the flat 3-D model by intersecting the raised metal patterns with curve solid layers. The method is general and can be applied on any layered structure even if vias are present. The full-wave simulations of the model, with and without the bow, are performed. The reflection coefficients (both measured and simulated) and radiation patterns are compared and analyzed to determine the effects of bowing.
