AWMF-0158 Product Overview

 

 

The AWMF-0158 is a highly integrated silicon quad core IC intended for 5G phased array applications. The device supports four Tx/Rx radiating elements, includes all requisite beam steering controls for phase and gain control, and operates in half duplex fashion to enable a single antenna to support both Tx and Rx operation. Additional features include gain compensation over temperature, temperature reporting, Tx power telemetry, and fast beam switching using on-chip beam weight storage registers. The device features ESD protection on all pins, operates from +1.8 V and 2.5V supplies, and is packaged in a WLCSP (wafer level chip scale package) for easy flip chip installation in planar phased array antennas.
