This paper presents simulations results of a 4 x 4 magneto-electric dipole (MED) array antenna fed by a single layer corporate-feed ridge gap waveguide (RGW) for millimeter wave applications. The designed antenna model consists of two unconnected metal layers: the top radiating layer and the bottom corporate-feed RGW layer. Hence, the antenna profile can be lowered since no intermediate cavity layer is required. The MED radiating element shows a larger impedance bandwidth compared to the conventional single layer array antenna. The S11<10 dB bandwidth of the simulated antenna is from 24 - 29 GHz, resulting in a 18:9% impedance bandwidth. The realized antenna gain is greater than approximately 19:6 dBi.
