Abstract
TLC will develop a wire-bond free wide band (X-band to Ka-band) miniature low cost high trhoughput radar transceiver technology that integrates a circular polarized antenna array with a mix-mode (digital& RF) MMIC transceiver chip. This will be developedby systematically utilizing TLC's proven capabilities of mix-mode lattice engineered material development, RF and digital circuit development, innovative MMIC & digital fabrication capbilities, antenna design and module integration experiences. In phase Ithe antenna design and test will be performed along with the building blocks. In phase II, integrtion methods will be established for the transceiver MMIC and the antenna, and a prototype unit will be delivered. Revolutionized Radar systems for bothmilitary and commercial by reduction of size, weight, and cost with simplified assembly and better performance.
