Abstract

The work presented in this paper reports on the design, fabrication and characterisation of an integrated InP chip for steering the beam of a four-element Phased Array Antenna operating at 40 GHz. The beam direction is determined by the time delays between the four antenna elements. The chip can introduce 8 different time delays to each of the four modulated optical signals that are used to control the four antenna elements. Measurement results of the switches and demultiplexers used in the chip are reported and the performance of the first integrated device is discussed.
