Miniaturized opto and microwave receiver module using DCCPWs (Double Conductor Coplanar Waveguides) have been developed for active phased array antennas. The module comprised by a microstrip-to-slot transition, two chips of low-noise MMIC amplifiers, and a laser diode module is fabricated on an ultra-thin package with 10301.5 mm3 in size and 2 g in weight to achieve an ultra-thin structure of active phased array antenna panels. The ultra-thin structure is attributed to the design of low-noise MMIC amplifiers using DCCPWs and laser diode modules using silicon V-groove technology and fiber alignment method.
