This work presents a low cost and wire-bonded active phase shifter chip to RF circuitry on PCB board packaging for implementing a two-element phased array antenna at 77 GHz. The 1.5 mm × 1.1 mm chip is embedded in RO3003 PCB board and its GSG ports are wire-bonded to CPW lines that are expanded to feed the patch antenna on the PCB board. A low loss CPW to microstrip line transition is designed to exploit and transmit the signal from the GSG pads on the chip to the microstrip line on the PCB. The beam of the two-element array can be steered between ±20° by controlling the DC bias voltage of the active phase shifter chip.
