This paper outlines design requirements and present test results of 60 GHz Chip Reference antennas.

Several  dozen antennas have been tested. The related uncertainties in the micro-probed antenna measurements will be evaluated with particular emphasis on the gain calibration uncertainty. The paper will also describe the  next steps towards developing a chip antenna  gain standard, that  should reduce gain  uncertainties while also significantly simplifying the calibration process.
