Three Critical Reasons for Thermal Analysis and Design for Phased Arrays

To achieve success in your next phased array project, failure cannot be a possibility. This is why thermal analysis and thermal design are critical to the success of your phased array.

Three reasons we consider especially important are:

  • First poor heat transfer from high-
    power amplifiers in your T/R
    module can damage your design.

  • Second is, even Silicon CMOS devices
    and Silicon germanium
    devices can generate enough
    heat to lead to failure.

  • The third reason that
    thermal analysis and thermal design is critical for phased arrays is that it will determine, at least in part, the mechanical structure of your array.
