Abstract

Butler matrices can be used in antenna beam-fori-ning networks to provide a linear phase distribution across the elements of an array. The development of an 8 to 18GHz rnicro-strip implementation of a 4-input 4-output Butler matrix is described. The designed Butler matrix uses March hybrids, Schiffirian phase shifters and wire-bond crossovers integrated on a single 60mm x 70mm alumina substrate.
