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.
