A concept for wideband electronic steered array
using analogue FIR-filters has been formulated. This paper focuses
on microwave applications, e.g. wideband antenna radiation
pattern, where we explain the design of a desired radiation
pattern for bandwidth 2:1. Therefore we consider a linear
narrowband radiation pattern and expand it to a wideband
array synthesis. The requirements for higher bandwidth, e.g.
3:1 in ultra wideband (UWB) communication systems, w.r.t.
different design parameters are obtained. Finally, we propose
the requirements for practical realization at microwave signal
