Integrated Active Antennas and Spatial Power Combining
This is the only book currently available that covers this subject. The authors piece together information from diverse areas which is essential to understand integrated and integrated active antennas. Emphasis is placed on active antennas and power combining applications, consolidating the work from numerous researchers. Early chapters lay the foundation for oscillator, antenna, array and power combining theory. Chapter five discusses important testing parameters and techniques for active antenna measurements and includes definitions for equivalent isotropic radiated power, locking gain and locking bandwidth. The last chapter sheds light on beam steering, a more recent development in active antenna arrays. Contains over 200 illustrations.
