Spotlight On Radar Technology
Utilizing Modern Day MPMs For High-Power And High-Efficiency
White Paper | By Jose Gonzales, dB Control

The first MPM, developed in the early 1990s, used a solid-state driver amplifier, based on MMICs or discrete RF power transistors, to drive a mini traveling-wave tube (mini-TWT), and combined these devices with a power supply and control circuits in a very compact enclosure.

Automotive Radars — Antenna Design, Integration, And Channel Modeling
White Paper | Altair Engineering Inc

Driving aid radar systems are critical to enabling key technologies in the development of autonomous vehicles. With the need to meet not only road safety applications, but parking assist functions as well, certain specifications must be maintained for the antenna to be integrated into the vehicle. 

How To Verify Beamformer ICs For Phased Array Antennas
White Paper | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

Beamforming using phased array antennas is a common technology for radar and electronic warfare in the aerospace and defense industry. This article discusses the process of verification for  beamformer ICs for phased array antennas.

Implications Of Using kW Level GaN Transistors In Radar And Avionic Systems
White Paper | By Daniel Koyama, Apet Barsegyan, and John Walker, Integra Technologies, Inc.

This white paper examines the effect of using normal Class A/B bias for kW-level GaN and LDMOS transistors used in radar and avionic systems.
