In this article, a compact antenna is proposed using new microwave dielectric ceramic (MDC) substrate for 5G millimetre wave application. The distinctive novelties exhibited in this article are used of MDCs substrate material for antenna designing and performances analysis for wireless communication. The proposed antenna achieves impedance bandwidth of 2.66 GHz (from 27.235 GHz to 29.895 GHz), which covers the top interest (28 GHz) for 5G mm-wave in some countries and trials have been reported. The proposed antenna attains average gain of 5.44 dB and 93% of radiation efficiency with antenna size of 1.32λ × 1.32λ × 0.094λ.
