Phased Array Antenna Patterns—Part 3: Sidelobes and Tapering

In Part 1, we introduced the phased array concept, beam steering, and array gain. In Part 2, we presented the concept of grating lobes and beam squint. In this section, we begin with a discussion of antenna sidelobes and the effect of tapering across an array. Tapering is simply the manipulation of the amplitude contribution of an individual element to the overall antenna response.

Phased Array Antenna Patterns—Part 2

This is the second article of our three-part series on phased array antenna patterns. In Part 1, we introduced the phased array steering concept and looked at the influencers on array gain. In Part 2, we’ll discuss grating lobes and beam squint. Grating lobes can be hard to visualize, so we’ll draw on their similarity with signal aliasing in digital converters, then use that to think of a grating lobe as a spatial alias.

Analog Devices Advances RF/mW in The Space Industry

On Saturday, May 30th, people across the world watched in awe as SpaceX launched a rocket, designed independently of any government, putting two astronauts into orbit on their way to the International Space Station — the first time in history for any commercial company. Ten years ago, this would have been an unthinkable endeavor for any commercial or private organization.
