A new, low-cost, switched-beam and fully adaptive antenna array suitable for 2.4 GHz ISM applications is proposed in this paper. The array comprises of four elements, equal in number receiving RF and IF components, as well as a microcontroller based unit which is responsible for the control of the array. The array is designed with the aid of a custom genetic algorithm, while measurements results are presented indicating consistency between design and implementation. In addition, multipath fading mitigation capability of the array is demonstrated via channel measurements results.
