Abstract:

MCT PROPOSES TO USE FERROELECTRIC BARIUM STRONTIUM TITANATE (BST) THIN FILMS TO DESIGN MONOLITHIC FREQUENCY-AGILE MICROWAVE BANDPASS FILTERS THAT CAN BE DYNAMICALLY ADJUSTED IN FREQUENCY BY THE APPLICATION OF A DC VOLTAGE. THIS ENABLES SYSTEMS THATOPERATE AT MULTIPLE FREQUENCY BANDS THROUGH SOFTWARE PROGRAMMING ONLY. IN ADDITION TO FREQUENCY-AGILE FILTERS, MONOLITHIC PHASE SHIFTERS FOR RADAR APPLICATIONS AND MICROWAVE DELAY LINES FOR COMPLEX LINEAR TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS ARE NOW ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLEFOR COMMERCIAL AS WELL AS MILITARY APPLICATIONS. DIRECT APPLICATIONS INCLUDE TUNABLE MICROWAVE FILTERS FOR CELLULAR HANDSETS, POLICE/FIRE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS, MILITARY RADARS AND COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS. THE CORE BST TECHNOLOGY CAN ALSO BE APPLIED TOPHASE SHIFTERS FOR WIRELESS LAN'S, GPS ANTENNA ARRAYS, CELLULAR BASE STATIONS, MILITARY RADARS AND COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS. ADDITIONAL APPLICATIONS INCLUDE PROGRAMMABLE HIGH FREQUENCY DELAY LINES, ADAPTIVE MATCHING CIRCUITS AND POWER DETECTORS.
