Array Geometries and Analysis
Uniform linear arrays (ULA), uniform rectangular arrays
(URA), uniform circular arrays (UCA), conformal arrays, subarrays,
array response, steering vectors
The Phased Array System Toolbox™ provides algorithms and apps
for modeling active and passive antenna and microphone arrays. Array
types include uniform linear arrays, uniform rectangular arrays, and
uniform circular arrays. You can also build arrays with arbitrary
geometries. Look at Phased Array Gallery for
examples of the different array types that the toolbox lets you create.
Algorithms are provided for subarray and partitioned array processing.
You can model array perturbations and mutual coupling between elements
and create heterogeneous arrays with multiple element types. All arrays
let you incorporate antennas from Phased Array System Toolbox or Antenna Toolbox™.
The toolbox includes functions for drawing array patterns, analyzing
array performance, and for creating steering vectors for array pointing.
