The potentiality of multichannel SAR, to provide wideswath and high resolution at the same time, has been described in many papers in the last past years. The scope of this paper is to address some of the architectural and technological aspects related to the implementation of a multichannel receiver for a multibeam-multimode SAR, with the objective to provide some solutions for different configurations with increased complexity.
