It integrates a 4×4 circularly polarized (CP) patch array and a 21-dB low noise amplifier (LNA) into the same package substrate. By applying a stripline sequential rotation feeding scheme the CP array exhibits a wide impedance bandwidth SWR2 and 3-dB axial ratio bandwidth, both over 8 GHz, as well as a beam-shaped pattern with a 3-dB beam width of 20̂ and a peak gain of 16.8 dBi. By applying a bond wire compensation scheme and low-loss transition optimization, the LNA is successfully integrated into the package. The final fabricated prototype measures only 13×20×1.4 mm 3, demonstrates the good integration performance as well as the CP polarization characteristics in measurement, and is estimated to have a peak overall gain of at least 35 dBi. © 2011 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82548||ISSN:||0018926X||DOI:||10.1109/TAP.2011.2158781|
