In this work, we perform a comparative analysis of the impact of substrate technologies on the performance of 28 GHz antennas for 5G applications. For this purpose, we model, simulate, analyze and compare 2×2 patch antenna arrays on five substrate technologies typically used for manufacturing integrated antennas. The impact of these substrates on the impedance bandwidth, efficiency and gain of the antennas is quantified. Finally, the antennas are fabricated and measured. Excellent correlation is obtained between measurement and simulation results.
