Wire-bond technology is cost-effective and widely available. This paper presents a mm-wave front-end module concept that exploits this technology for antenna implementation. A straightforward and computationally efficient modeling approach for the design of such antennas is presented that can be used in combination with standard IC design tools. The model was successfully verified with a commercial FDTD solver as well as measurements.
