Low-Cost, High-Power Transmit/Receive Modules for X-band Radars
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
In this STTR Phase II project Vega Wave Systems, Inc. will develop a new type of InGaP-GaAs heterojunction bipolar transistors for integrated X-band radar transmit/receive modules. The Phase II objective is a new device design in order to achieve high device performance suitable for both power amplifier and low-noise amplifier X-band radar applications in a common heterostructure. The design is expected to result in a new approach capable of achieving high performance in an inherently low-cost device process. Discrete prototype power amplifier and low noise amplifiers will be designed, fabricated, and characterized for thermal performance. Based upon the discrete amplifier results, a monolithic low noise amplifier and power amplifier will be fabricated, characterized, and delivered at the end of Phase II.
