Design of Phased-Array Antennas for MIMO & Beam-Steering Applications


This white paper explores basic phased-array theory and the design considerations behind next-generation antenna systems. It examines the new capabilities recently added to the NI AWR Design Environment platform for developing the RF front-end hardware supporting these new antenna systems, which must be optimized for performance, reliability, compactness, and cost.

Design Challenges Of Next-Generation AESA Radar


Phased-array antennas, first used in military radar systems, are gaining in popularity for a variety of applications with new active electronically-scanned arrays (AESAs) being used for radar systems in satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles. As these systems are deployed, meeting size and performance requirements are critical. To support AESA radar development efforts, electronic design autom... » read more
