Linearisation of an FM-CW 94.5 GHz millimeter-wave radar
Thesis (MScEng (Electrical and Electronic Engineering))--University of Stellenbosch, 2006.
The topic of millimeter wave radar systems is introduced. These radars are used in a wide range of applications in both the aviation and automotive field due to the resolution advantages which MMW systems have above their counterparts. MMW components are studied and characterised to improve on an existing linearisation technique. Different possible linearisation techniques are discussed and compared to choose the best possible technique for this application. This technique was developed and implemented in the existing system.
