Abstract

The forthcoming 5G communication system is expected to adopt millimeter-wave bands in order to satisfy the ever-growing traffic explosion. The coverage efficiency was proposed in earlier works to evaluate the beam-scanning capability and coverage performance of array antennas implemented in 5G user equipment. However, when multi-subarray configurations are introduced into user equipment, the coverage efficiency fails to reflect the coverage performance of each subarray under the influence of housing. In this paper, we use the effective beam-scanning efficiency to evaluate the coverage performance of a subarray covered by a superstrate. The results provide valuable insight into 5G mobile antenna design.
