Abstract

This paper will discuss multichip module (MCM) technology as it is applied to a prototype high performance direct digitizing channelized radar receiver system under development for the Navy's E2-C Airborne Early Warning Aircraft, which encompasses both analog signals at UHF frequencies and multi-gigahertz digital signals. Critical issues which arise in the design of such a system will be discussed, including thermal management, transmission line, voltage standing wave ratio, and simultaneous switching noise analyses. This paper will also describe the various simulation and analysis software tools employed in the development of the MCM containing the analog-to-digital converter (A/D converter) and demultiplexer for this system, and the roles of these tools in providing insight into the design of the MCM.
