Butler matrices can be used in antenna beam-forming networks to provide a linear phase distribution across the elements of an array. The development of an 8 to 18GHz micro-strip implementation of a 4-input 4-ouput Butler matrix is described. The designed Butler matrix uses March hybrids, Schiffman phase shifters and wire-bond crossovers integrated on a single 60mm x 70mm alumina substrate.
