5G (Fifth Generation Wireless Communication) aims to address the increasing demand for high-bandwidth, high-data-rate communication as well as the emergence of machine-to-machine communications (M2M) as part of the continuous evolution in mobile communication. MIMO (multiple-input multiple output) technology has improved the bandwidth efficiency for wireless communications systems and will form a vital part in 5G systems for further enhancement.

The printed dipole array consists of a linear array of dipoles that - depending on the element spacing - can be steered between -60° and 60°. When designed to operate at 5G mmWave bands, the array is small enough that it is feasible for multiple arrays to be integrated in a device the size of a typical mobile phone. By independently steering the beams of these multiple arrays, highly flexible and optimal MIMO operation can be achieved for different operating environments....
