The fifth generation (5G) wireless communications systems have brought a growing need for various antennas, electrically small and large, low-gain and large-gain, also at millimeter wavelengths, and in many cases with beam steering or switching capability. Frequencies of 28 GHz, 38 GHz, 58 GHz, 60 GHz, 71-86 GHz, 140-150 GHz, and some even higher window frequencies are of interest in 5G and subsequent generations. Different parts of the systems need different kinds of antennas. In this presentation, we discuss two antenna types that we have recently studied, namely high-gain lenses with beam switching capability and lower gain printed antennas that suit very well for mass production.
