A tri-band 2 × 2 MIMO antenna array for 5G applications is presented. It consists of two orthogonally-placed compact tri-band 28/38/60 GHz antennas with the realized gain varying between 3.5 and 8.5 dBi over the operating frequencies. Each individual antenna maintains a monopole-like radiation pattern across these bands. In addition, the MIMO characterization of the proposed array is discussed. The simulation results show that the envelope correlation coefficient of the array is excellent with a maximum value of less than 0.0015 whereas the diversity gain almost attains 10 dB over the entire operating frequency. The simple planar structure of the MIMO array also offers an ease of fabrication and practical integration with other electronic components.
