White Paper: Cost-effective Front-end Components for X- and Ku-band Phased Array RADAR
Altum RF published a White Paper on Cost-effective Front-end Components for X- and Ku-band Phased Array RADAR in Microwave Journal
This paper looks at common system architectures for short- to medium-range AESA radars, with a focus on the front-end components used to enhance system performance. These components include the power amplifier (PA) for transmit, the low-noise amplifier (LNA) for receive, and the transmit-receive switch to connect the antenna to the electronics. Key features include the different power levels, frequency bands, and compact size required to use these systems in urban areas.
