Millimeter wave frequencies are front running contenders for 5G wireless communications. A wideband antenna that can provide coverage in whole of these frequencies is a well sought off challenge. This paper presents design of a quasi-Yagi antenna consisting of three driven arms and three pairs of spiral directors that efficiently meets this requirement. To satisfy the flexibility demand of wearable applications, the antenna employs liquid crystal polymer LCP as the substrate. The antenna has a small size of 5×8×0.202 mm 3 while covering 24-71 GHz band.The proposed antenna achieves peak gain of 2.85, 6.33 and 8.52 dBi, respectively, and an efficiency of more than 70% in the desired frequency bands. The symmetric structure of the antenna also makes the fabrication easier. The ultra-wideband, radiation characteristics and flexibility of usage makes it a promising candidate for 5G and Beyond wearable applications.
