Complete X-Band 2x2 Phased-Array Antenna Design and Simulation
November 7, 2018
8am PT / 11am ET
This presentation will discuss the commercial system simulation software design flow to design and analyze a 2x2 phased-array antenna with a T/R module operating in the 8-12 GHz frequency range. The T/R module is packaged using LTCC technology and includes an embedded MMIC PA and LNA, as well as several vendor models and passive components like filters. The design will highlight system- level characterization, the use of RF circuit design software for schematic entry and layout, as well as planar EM and 3D finite element method (FEM) tools for electromagnetic (EM) simulation of the interconnects and bond-wire transitions.
