Abstract

A series feed network concept based on a distributed CRLH stripline and couplers is proposed for frequency scanning phase array applications. The characteristics of such a network, which includes a smaller footprint, are discussed and compared to the traditional transmission line series feed network. Design details of an implementation centered around 6GHz are provided, along with measurements results of the standalone network and as a feed for a 4 element antenna array, for validation of the core idea.
