    Abstract

    Abstract – In this paper, we investigate various technologies and trade-offs used for manufacturing of integrated circuits with respect to their performance characteristics such as RF frequency, gain, noise figure, linearity and power consumption. This investigation is crucial for design of transceivers at microwave and higher frequencies. In the following, we show the in-house designed prototype of a highly integrated X- and Ku-band planar phased array receiver, having 8 channels and 64 antenna elements based on this investigation. The die size of the 8-channel phased array receiver with 2 GHz IF-bandwidth is 4 mm × 3.8 mm and the size of the prototype is 11 cm × 9.5 cm
