Current Projects: Design of 8-Channel Ku-band Rx and Tx Beam Formers

The research objective of this project is to develop high performance 8-channel Ku-band receive (10-13 GHz) and transmit (12.5-14.7 GHz) beam formers. The receive beam former has eight inputs, dual outputs with digitally controlled amplitudes and phases to RF steered beam outputs. The transmit beam former has eight outputs, dual inputs, driving eight element arrays with digitally controlled amplitudes and phases. MMICs, such as Low Noise Amplifier, Variable Gain amplifier, Power Amplifier and etc., can be easily employed in other transmitting or receiving communication systems.
