In this paper, a planar compact ultra-wideband microstrip antenna is proposed for millimeter-wave communication. The proposed single antenna element has 93.78% fractional bandwidth (covered band of 23.5 GHz to 65 GHz). The simulated radiation efficiency is greater than 93% and a peak gain of 5.6 dBi, with less than 3 dB variation in the whole band. The return loss of the single element antenna is well below −10 dB in the proposed band. The unique contribution of the proposed antenna design lies in its huge operation bandwidth (41.5 GHz) with a very simple structure. The proposed ultra-wideband antenna is suitable for many mmWave applications such as ISM band at 24 GHz, the upper region of K-band, Ka-band (27–40 GHz), mmWave 5G communication (26 GHz, 28 GHz, 38 GHz), as well as 60 GHz high-speed wireless communication (IEEE 802.11ad).
