Design and Modeling of a Solid-State T/R Module for Radar Applications

Active phased array radars (APARs) typically require solid-state T/R modules with high-output power, low-noise figure (NF), high third-order intercept (TOI), and sufficient gain in both transmit and receive1. Since the T/R module is 40-60% of the overall RF front-end cost, it is imperative to use an architecture that meets all requirements with the most cost-effective technology, such as monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), and a minimal bill of materials (BOM). Learn about various solid-state semiconductor technologies for T/R module development and a design methodology that includes the modeling/analysis of a T/R module.
