This paper proposes two compact and bandwidth efficient multi-band rectangular microstrip patch antennas for future mm-w 5G wireless communications. The first proposed one is a dual-band antenna with dimensioning to 7.68 × 9.18 × 0.78 mm3. This antenna provides approximately 2.086 GHz/7.143 GHz of bandwidth and produces a maximum gain of 8.13 dBi/6.33 dBi at 28 GHz/38 GHz respectively. The second antenna is a tri-band resonating at 28 GHz, 45 GHz and 60 GHz. This antenna has a small size of 7.2 × 8.8 × 0.78 mm3. The first band is 3.543 GHz wide with a maximum achievable gain of 5.19 dBi. The second band has a bandwidth of 4.687 GHz and a maximum gain of 5.85 dBi. Moreover, a maximum gain of 6.07 dBi is obtained at the third band, which has a bandwidth of 5.926 GHz. The proposed antennas are low profile and compact enough to be integrated into handheld mobile units. Furthermore, the antennas provide enough bandwidth (>5% of the center frequency) and an acceptable gain which are required by the mm-w 5G wireless systems.
