Abstract

This paper presents a simultaneous high-Q impedance matching and bandpass filtering technique for low-noise amplifiers (LNA) for radio frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) phased array system at 15 GHz, over the bandwidth of 1 GHz. A non-uniform transmission line (NUTL) segment is used as a major building block, which provides feasible integration for multiple antennas. A feeding network for single element receiver is demonstrated. The simulated and measured results show sufficient impedance matching of input feeds with S11 <; -10 dB over a relative bandwidth of 7% at 15 GHz.
