Abstract : The report covers the development of an X-band, integrated, low-noise sweeping receiver or Integrated Microwave Amplifier-Converter (IMAC) covering 8-10 GHz. Based on a system tradeoff study, the following components were selected for the IMAC: Wideband, circulator-coupled, tunnel diode RF amplifiers; varactor-tuned, tunnel diode oscillator; image-phased balanced mixer; wideband IF amplifier; narrowband IF filter. The report details the design, construction, and testing of the above components of the IMAC and includes a study of system reliability. (Author)
