This paper describes the design and characteristics of a highly efficient multilayer parasitic microstrip antenna array (MPMAA) constructed on a multilayer substrate for millimeter-wave system-on-package modules. The antenna on a Teflon substrate achieved a radiation efficiency of greater than 91% and an associated antenna gain of 11.1 dBi at 60 GHz. Its size is only 10 mm × 10 mm. We discuss MPMAAs fabricated on both Teflon and low-temperature cofired ceramic (LTCC) substrates. The measured
