As phased-array antennas become more popular, the complexity and cost issues involved in developing communications systems based on phased-array antennas are addressed through new functionalities in electronic design automation (EDA) software. This software enables designers to develop new system architectures, component specifications, and implementation of the physical design of individual components and verify performance prior to prototyping. This application note discusses these trends and presents recent advances in EDA tools for phased-array-based systems. Download the application note for more information.
