AWMF-0161 37-40 GHz IF Up/Down Converter IC

AWMF-0161 IF Up/Down Converter IC Product Overview

37-40 GHz IF Up/Down Converter IC

The AWMF-0161 is a highly integrated silicon frequency-conversion IC intended for 5G phased array applications. When used together with Anokiwave’s beamformer IC products, this device enables low-cost, high-performance, and feature-rich 5G phased array systems. The half-duplex IC integrates Tx single-sideband up-conversion and Rx image-reject down-conversion functionality with programmable high side or low side LO. An on-chip frequency multiplier simplifies board-level integration with external PLLs. The multi-function device also includes an RF bypass mode in which the frequency-conversion function is bypassed, and the IC effectively functions as an RF gain block. This feature enables a scalable phased-array architecture without the use of numerous discrete amplifier and switch components.

The IF up/down converter ICs are fully compatible with the respective Anokiwave Beamformer ICs, sharing common mechanical and electrical interfaces, and designed for cascade integration from IF to antenna and back.
