Integrating X-Band Radar for Next-Level Detection and Imaging

Integrating X-Band Radar for Next-Level Detection and Imaging

As you can imagine, radar, originally developed by the military in the 1930s, has undergone significant changes. New technologies enable the delivery of transmitters and receivers with greater precision, more efficient power use, and significant size reduction. And in recent years, electronic control elements for beamforming have become increasingly popular, providing more flexibility and increased benefits in the latest generations of X-band solutions

X-band radar occupies 8-12 GHz and has superior target resolution and improved support for operations that require higher accuracy. It operates with a smaller antenna size than lower frequency counterparts—enabling more compact antenna arrays—as well as offering greater sensitivity for detecting smaller objects because of the small wavelength used.

The advancements in X-band have given way to significant growth in the global radar industry. According to Allied Market Research, the industry was worth $32.56 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2021 to 2028, reaching $44.35 billion, driven by increased demand in the automotive and defense industries, territorial battles, and advancements in technology.

Of course, with new advancements, there are also new design challenges. This blog post provides excerpts from a recent Qorvo Design Summit webinar on integration guidance for X-band applications.
