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 +2.5 V supplies, and is packaged WLCSP (wafer level chip scale package) for easy flip chip installation in planar phased array antennas.
The Gen-2 5G ICs were the first 3GPP compliant commercially available ICs for 5G.
3GPP Compliant 5G communications arrays in the n257 and n261 bands
Not recommended for new designs, consider the newer AWMF-0162 for improved performance.
