A Brief Overview of Phase Array Systems

The concept of the phased array antenna system was first put into practice by German Physicist Ferdinand Braun and his assistants in the spring of 1905. In short, he and his assistants carefully controlled the excitation phase of each antenna in an array and determined that the combined effect exhibited significant directivity. In the nearly 12 decades since Braun first described the phased array antenna system, this technology has become commonplace in 4G/5G communications, electronic warfare, radar, nonlethal weaponry, and advanced imaging applications.1

Power Sensors for Any Requirement

Power sensors are an essential tool for any RF/microwave test engineer. Mini-Circuits developed its extensive PWR series of smart power sensors to provide an option for any test requirement, budget and experience level. The PWR series includes a range of high-performance sensors up to 40 GHz supporting measurements of any signal type, from CW / single tone applications to pulsed signals and most modern digital modulations.
