The authors proposed a switching beam slot array antenna with a 4-way Butler matrix. All are integrated in one substrate with post-wall waveguide techniques. The planar Butler matrix is realized by using short slot directional couplers (cross coupler). Experiments in 26GHz band confirmed the key operation of this antenna; almost identical four beams are switched to cover the total of horizontal 90-degree sector with equal angular spacing.
