Abstract:

A 4 x 4, 17.5 GHZ Monolithic Phased Array fabricated on high resistivity silicon is described. This approach combines microstrip antenna elements, beam lead PIN diodes and silicon integrated circuit technology to replace labor intensive hybrid circuit construction techniques with low cost, repeatable integrated circuit processes. Preliminary test data from two hardware iterations is presented. Although the program is formally concluded, additional testing is still being conducted to characterize overall performance. Author
