A High Performance Ku-band Two Channel Downconverter for Interferometric Radar Applications

  title={A High Performance Ku-band Two Channel Downconverter for Interferometric Radar Applications},
  author={Paul R. Siqueira and Michael C. Tope},
This paper addresses the initial stages for the design, construction and testing of a two-channel, twostage downconverter from Ku-band to IF, where the emphasis on relative phase accuracy and inter-channel cross-talk requirements are critical design elements in the application of the downconverter for interferometric radar applications.
