Duplexer Considerations for X-Band T/R Modules

The capabilities of the three most common duplexer configurations as well as supporting component design considerations
Duplexer Considerations for X-band T/R Modules A transmit/receive (T/R) module’s duplexer plays a critical role in determining a phased array’s reliability, radar cross section (RCS) and performance. Several different block diagrams are typically used to realize the duplexer, but many common configurations do not satisfy basic duplexer requirements. This...
