Transmit / Receive Modules for Phased-Array Radar: Components, Construction and Cost

Course Description

Gain an in-depth look at the hardware that comprises state-of-the-art transmit/receive modules. Explore transmit/receive module requirements, module design, hybrid and monolithic microwave integrated circuits, thermal management, packaging and cost. Examine practical issues, such as design trade-offs, technology limitations and performance tradeoffs. An introduction to phased array antennas and the important functions that transmit/receive modules perform in these systems will also be covered.
