Phased Array Antenna Training, Phased Array Antenna Engineering Training Bootcamp
Phased array antennas include multiple emitters and are used for beamforming in high-frequency RF applications.
In antenna theory, a phased array is an array of antennas in which all of the phases of each signal that feeds each antenna are set in such a way that the effective radiation pattern of the entire array is set toward the desired direction and that the signals emanating toward undesired directions are suppressed.
The number of emitters in a phased array antenna can range from a few into the thousands. Phased array antennas are appearing in many different use cases such as:
- Chirped radar
The fundamental principle of the phased array antenna is the phase-dependent superposition of two or more radiated signals. When the signals are in-phase, they combine together to form a signal of additive amplitude.
When the signals are counter phase, they cancel each other.
There are several types of phased array antennas, such as:
- Linear array
- Planar array
- Frequency scanning array
In recent years, phased array antennas have been gaining popularity for use in 5G communication technologies.
An antenna array for 5G has to be able to create multibeam (approximately dozens or hundreds of beams), wide azimuthal coverage (approximately 360°), and high gain (>20 dB).
Many communications sector analysts believe the phased array antenna is a crucial ingredient to unlock the true potential of 5G technology by attaining wider bandwidths and extended coverage, and better capacity at the millimeter-wave spectrum.
Although millimeter-wave systems can be relatively easily deployed for short-range indoor setups, many challenges are involved during their use for outdoor scenarios.
