Abstract - With the rapid growth of wireless communication systems, phased arrays with continuously beam-scanning capability has been an essential requirement to achieve better immunity against interference and higher data throughput. In the literature, many previous designs are realized either by mean of a higher order of beam-forming network or by the adoption of phase shifting network. While the former solution to improve the spatial resolution dramatically raises the circuit complexity due to a large number of couplers and crossovers implemented in the network, the performance of the latter one relies heavily on the choice of the phase shifters, which are commonly a high cost and high insertion loss component. In this talk, new phase distribution networks (PDNs) and their applications to realize low-cost continuously beam-scanning arrays with two-dimensional scanning capability will be presented. The design details, including the formulation of the PDN, the realization of the phase shifting elements, the implementation to continuously beam-scanning arrays, the power handling capacity, comparisons and limitations, are thoroughly discussed.
