High-Performance Radar Systems Based on GaN Technology
Phased arrays work on the principle that the interference between coinciding waveforms with different phase angles can influence the direction of transmission. Using this technique, a two-dimensional array of emitters can steer its aggregated output across a relatively wide angle, perpendicular to the array's sur
