Phased array communications and radar systems are finding increased use in a variety of applications. This places a greater importance on training engineers and rapidly prototyping new phased array concepts. However, both those imperatives have historically been difficult and expensive. That is why Analog Devices is (soon!) launching the ADALM-PHASER. It is a low cost, simplified phased array radar which allows real beamforming hardware to be used for education, project proposals, and even software development.

Here is a brief video introduction to the phaser:

Phaser Hardware

  • When??? We’re hitting some delays due to part availability. But we hope to have ordering information available in early 2023.
  • To get acquainted with the hardware, see the Phaser Hardware Overview page.

Labs and Lectures

The ADALM-PHASER is meant for you to experience, first hand, phased array beamforming and radar concepts. But to go along with the hardware, we’ve put together a series of short lectures followed by hands-on labs that you can perform with your own Phaser. A complete, printable lab manual is available here:

The expanded list of topics is as follows:

  • Basics of SDR and Beamforming Control
  • Phased Array Beam Steering
  • Phased Array Antenna Patterns
  • Sidelobes and Beam Tapering
  • Analog, Digital, and Hybrid Beamforming
  • Radar: CFAR, Range Normalization, Clutter Suppression, and Range/Velocity
    • Lab Material (Coming Soon)
    • Lecture Video (Coming Soon)
    • Lab Video (Coming Soon)


This series is partially derived from several sources that also provide valuable background information.
