Transmit-receive module for a means of transportation

Module émitteur-récepteur pour un moyen de transport

Sende-Empfangsmodul für ein Transportmittel

Abstract

A communication module for a means of transportation such as an automobile, a vessel or the like, the communication module being disposed on a back side or inside of an identification plate of the means of transportation. The communication module is formed of a millimeter wave integrated circuit section and a plane antenna section. The millimeter wave integrated circuit section has two conductive plates arranged on a parallel with each other, and a dielectric stripline and an electric element disposed between the conductive plates. The plane antenna section has two conductive plates arranged on a parallel with each other, a dielectric stripline disposed between the conductive plates and a slot made in one of the conductive plates. At least respective one of the conductive plates of the millimeter wave integrated circuit section and the conductive plates of the plane antenna section are integrated in a plane. The identification plate is made of a material which transmits a millimeter wave with a small loss, for example, polycarbonate, polybutylene terephtalate, polypropyrene reinforced with glass fiber, ABS resin or the like.
