The AWMF-0109 is a highly integrated silicon quad core chip intended for satellite communications transmit applications. The device supports four dual polarization radiating elements with full programmable polarization flexibility. The device provides 22 dB of gain per channel with an output power of +12 dBm per element per polarization. Additional features include gain compensation over temperature, temperature reporting, and Tx output power telemetry. The chip 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.
