Analogue LSI RF switch and beamforming matrixes for communications satellites


Communications satellites use steerable antenna arrays for their communication links. These arrays need multi channel signal routing circuits up to several tens of channels. Traditionally this circuitry has been realized with hybrid technology. This has resulted to tens of Watts in power consumption and several kilograms of payload weight. In this paper we… (More)
