    Abstract

    For the modern radio astronomy instruments wide instantaneous bandwidth is a characteristic of great interest. This can be a difficult requirement for a phased array antenna (PAA)employing a traditional electronic beamformer: the performance of the constituting components, mainly combiners and delay elements, limits the bandwidth of the total system.
