Within the framework of the project VERSA, a new approach to beam forming networks is investigated. The aim is to combine structural and electrical functions in one multilayer to gain electrical performance and to save weight. For this purpose a library of standard components for the RF-designer is developed, as well as the fabrication technology to produce these modules reliably and with high yield.
