Abstract : The use of digital control circuitry and reciprocal latching ferrite phase shifters can result in a significant reduction in the power drain of the beam steering electronics for phased array antenna systems. This report deals with the design of the beam steering electronics required for a small phased array antenna system utilizing 16 phase shifters. LSI (large scale integration) and MSI (medium scale integration) monolithic digital circuitry are used extensively throughout the beam steering system as a means of reducing the size, weight, and power drain and simplifying the overall interconnection wiring.
