Substrate integrated waveguide is a good candidate for implementing millimeter wave applications. In this paper, we represented microstrip transition to substrate integrated waveguide slot antenna for multiband applications, which is developed by Rogers RT/duriod 5880 with a dielectric constant of 2.2, the substrate thickness of 0.381 mm and metallization thickness is 0.035 mm. The simulation results show reflection coefficient, VSWR, gain and radiation pattern. This antenna produces two resonant frequencies, one band is 2.2 GHz with a resonant frequency of 60 GHz (Suitable for wireless communication networks) and 3.05 GHz band with a resonant frequency 79 GHz (suitable for automotive radar systems).
