A highly compact slot array antenna using substrate integrated folded waveguides (SIFW) is proposed in this paper. The device has three key components: a non radiating SMA to standard waveguide transition, a power divider from standard waveguide to folded waveguides, and slot arrays on the folded waveguide. The antenna is built using two substrates aligned with conducting vias which makes the device, low profile, small size, low cost and easy to manufacture.
