Beam-forming Network Developments for European Satellite Antennas

The development of multiple beams and reconfigurable antennas has always been tightly connected to that of beam-forming networks. The beam-forming network (BFN) is often the dominant component, the true “heart” of most multiple beams antennas. Beam-forming networks are complex networks used to precisely control the phase and amplitude of...

Testing Satellite Frequency Converters

Frequency converters, a key component in modern satellite communications systems, create special characterization challenges for developers and manufacturers. The signals, processed by these converters and their modulation formats, can change dramatically from day-to-day and even hour-to-hour. The channels may be re-allocated to different services, and with its high cost,...

Adjustable mm-wave Gain Equalizers

Growing demand for higher communication bandwidths has led to considerable development of systems operating at millimeter-wave frequencies. These systems have, in turn, stimulated research and development efforts of 26 to 40 GHz components such as TWT and solid-state amplifiers and phase shifters. These novel components often suffer from bandwidth...
