Gen-1 5G Silicon Tx/Rx Quad Core IC
The AWMF-0108 is a highly integrated silicon quad core IC intended for 5G phased array applications. The device supports four Tx/Rx radiating elements, includes 5 bit phase and 5 bit gain control for analog RF beam steering, 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 eight on-chip beam weight storage registers. The device features ESD protection on all pins, operates from a +1.8 V supply, and is packaged in a 48 lead 6x6 mm QFN for easy installation in planar phased array antennas.
