Corporate Feed, S parameters, array factor, power divider.


The design of a corporate feed for an X band frequency scan microstrip antenna array is presented. The power distribution generated by the corporate feed network is based in a Taylor distribution to obtain a sidelobe level below 20dB in the azimuth direction. The S parameters are used as a tool for evaluating the performance of the circuit. Simulation and prototypes were used to complete this work.
