Abstract:

The components and techniques investigated in Phase I see AD-431 662 were combined to function as the microwave and IF portions of a receiver. Several possible receiver configurations were analyzed for noise figure, stability, dynamic range, tunability, bandwidth, size, weight, power consumption, feasibility, and compatibility. On the basis of this analysis three receiver packages incorporating waveguide techniques, stripline techniques, and a low noise R.F. preamplifier, were selected as the items which would be developed during the final phase of this program. Specifications were prepared for all major components and initial development was started. Additional investigations of the performance of mixers operating at low 100 microwatt L.O. powers revealed that noise figures of 9.0 db can be realized at L.O. power levels of -13 dbm with a 2.0 db I.F. noise figure. Preliminary specifications and package layouts for each of the three receivers were also completed. Author
