Fundamentals of mm-Wave Phased-Arrays

Abstract

Millimeter(mm)-Wave phased arrays are becoming a differentiating technology in modern wireless communication and imaging systems. This tutorial will cover key aspects of silicon-based mm-wave phased array IC design and package integration. It will begin with an overview of the theory and intuition behind phased arrays; it will then discuss different silicon-based phased-array architectures and key phased-array building blocks, including phase shifters, variable-gain amplifiers, combiners, and splitters. Finally, this tutorial will discuss the integration of phased-array ICs with antennas in phased-array antenna modules.
