The new KRYTAR 4×4 Butler Matrix uses KRYTAR’s high-performance 90- and 180-degree Hybrid Couplers, providing super phase accuracy, amplitude imbalance, stability, and repeatability.
A Butler matrix is a beamforming network used to feed a phased array of antenna elements. Its purpose is to control the direction of a beam, or beams, of radio transmission.
KRYTAR’s Butler Matrix can be utilized as a beamforming network used to feed a phased array of antenna elements with the purpose to control the direction of a beam, or beams, of radio transmission. The advantage over other methods of angular beamforming is the simplicity of use in a variety of applications. KRYTAR’s 4×4 Butler Matrix, Model KBM9005070, is the ideal choice for antenna array beamforming, 5G NR (New Radio), Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E, mmWave, MIMO (Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output) radio links, multipath simulation and performance evaluation, and many other upcoming applications.
Covering the frequency range from 0.5 to 7.0 GHz this Butler Matrix provides ±1.0 dB of maximum Amplitude Imbalance and maximum Phase Imbalance of ±12 degrees. This Butler Matrix exhibits Insertion Loss of 11.0 dB with Maximum Input and Output VSWR of 1.5:1 dB and Isolation of 14 dB. Average Power rating is 20 watts.
Model KBM9005070 Butler Matrix is a compact package measuring just 11.95 inches (L) x 4.80 inches (W) x 1.35 inches (H), and comes with standard SMA coaxial female connectors.
