Project Overview

This is a second project with Anaren Microwave Inc. with the purpose of designing, simulating, building and testing two types of 4x4 X-Band Butler Matrices that can be used for antenna beamforming which consists of 180 deg hybrid coupler, a 90 deg hybrid coupler, a 45 deg phase shifter, and a connector launch.

This team will focus on microwave circuit structures using theoretical models, Ansoft Designer, 3D models in Ansoft HFSS and Network Analyzer.
