Paper Abstract

This presentation addresses a plan to incorporate the use of photoconductor switches in digitizing high frequency antenna array data. High frequency (HF) typically refers to the frequency band from 2 to 30 megahertz where, under current technology, almost all signal processing is done by analog techniques. If one is to bring all the tools and techniques of modern signal processing to this frequency band, a goal which is consistent with the Department of Defense programs in the development of very high speed integrated circuits (VHSIC), then digital-signal-processing silicon devices which can easily operate at 100-MHz sample rates will need to be utilized.
