Development of a 210 GHz near-field measurement radar system based on an antenna-integrated MMIC receiver front-end and an ultra-compact HBV transmitter source module
Paper i proceeding, 2008

The development of a 210 GHz radar system intended to study security applications such as personnel scanning is reported. The system is designed to operate with a transmit antenna floodlighting the target scene and a mechanically scanned antenna-integrated receiver module. For increased performance and potential future volume production the receiver front-end is based on highly integrated MMICs manufactured using the IAF 0.1 µm GaAs mHEMT process made available through a Swedish-German MoU. A single-chip MMIC solution is being developed containing feed antenna, LNA, mixer and an LO multiplier-chain. The transmitter part is based on a high-power HBV quintupler source-module.
