Abstract:The design of active integrated antennas operating in the millimeter-wave (mm-wave) range requires a two-fold analysis: on one hand, the electromagnetic modeling of large planar arrays; on the other hand, the characterization of the active devices. In this paper we face the former task, by presenting an efficient method for the calculation of the voltages induced on all the elements of a planar array by the input (gaussian) beam, and the evaluation of the impedance matrix of the array. These parameters, together with the modeling of the active devices, allow for a full characterization of the active integrated antenna.
