Applications of Programmable Microwave Function Array (PROMFA)
2007 (English)In: Proceedings of the IEEE European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design (ECCTD 2007), August 26-30, 2007, Seville, Spain, IEEE , 2007, 164 -167 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper describes the use of programmable microwave function array (PROMFA) for different microwave application. The PROMFA concept is based on an array of generic cells, in which a number of different functions can be realized. Each PROMFA cell is a four-port circuit, that can either be programmed independently or collectively according to a specific need. Specifically, the phase shift capability in a single PROMFA cell, useful for a new type of phase shifter design is discussed. The paper also presents the functionality of this new architecture as a beamforming network. As an example case an active corporate feed network and a tunable recursive filter is demonstrated. Simulated and measured results are presented.
