Cost-effective radar components to mitigate the aviation’s environmental impact
More efficient air traffic management systems are key to reducing the carbon footprint of the aviation sector. Millimetre-wave radars operating in the frequency range between 93 and 100 GHz are important building blocks of enhanced flight vision systems – systems that facilitate lifting and landing in poor visibility conditions. Cost-effective surface-mounted components for building these radar systems are highly necessary. The EU-funded GRACE project will cover both circuit design and packaging of such radar components. For the circuit design, the project will use the so-called GaN HEMT monolithic microwave circuit (MMIC) technology, a type of semiconductor technology particularly suitable for generating high power at higher frequencies. A fan-out wafer-level approach will be used for MMIC packaging.
