Abstract

This paper describes the development of novel GaAs MMICs and microstrip antennas which are being used to implement a prototype 2x2-element, planar, single-sideband, ultra-low-noise receiver array. The receivers may be adjusted to operate at any frequency between 80 and 110 GHz, with image rejection greater than 15 dB, by tuning the local oscillator frequency. The MMICs have been designed to perform well when cryogenically cooled to below 20 K.
