KRYTAR, Inc., a designer of ultra-broadband microwave components and test equipment, announces a new family of monopulse comparators offering beamforming solutions with coverage of multiple microwave bands, from 0.5 GHz to 40 GHz. A KRYTAR monopulse comparator is a beamforming network used to feed a phased array of antenna elements. Its purpose is to control the direction of a beam, or beams, of radio transmission.
KRYTAR monopulse comparators are the ideal choice for antenna array beamforming, high-speed radar searching and tracking, multipath simulation and performance evaluation, and many other applications. Offering coverage of multiple microwave bands, from 0.5 GHz to 40 GHz (L- thru Ka-Bands), KRYTAR’s monopulse comparators have the advantage over other methods of angular beamforming with excellent functionality and simplicity of use.
Properties that are important to beamforming include bandwidth, phase and amplitude imbalance, high isolation, low insertion loss and voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), superior electrical performance and rugged dDesigns. This new family of 10 models of monopulse comparators uses KRYTAR’s high-performance 180° hybrid couplers providing superior phase accuracy, amplitude imbalance, stability and repeatability all within a single compact package with coaxial connectors.
KRYTAR offers complete engineering services for custom designs that meet or exceed critical performance or packaging including custom frequency options.
