In this paper, we present a radio frequency (RF) transmitter front-end which can be used in analog beamforming applications. The proposed system is modular and can be used in different frequency bands. Using low-cost components and substrates, this design makes analog beamforming affordable also for commercial applications. We demonstrate system performance in terms of S-parameter and upconverter measurements in C-band. Reproducibility of the achieved results is shown by analyzing multiple front-end units.
