AWMF-0196 37 - 48.2 GHz IF Transceiver IC

AWMF-0196 Dual Channel IF Transceiver IC Product Overview

NEW Dual Channel IF Transceiver IC

The AWMF-0196 is the latest addition to the famiy of fully integrated dual channel IF up/down converters with integrated PLL/VCO LO synthesizer. The half-duplex IC integrates dual Tx single-sideband up-conversion, dual Rx image-reject down-conversion functionality, and an on-chip LO synthesizer that enables 2T2R applications within a single die. An on-chip frequency multiplier simplifies board-level integration for use with either an internal frequency synthesizer or an external PLL.

New features for this generation include on-chip selectable LO multiplication, high IF support, LO multiplexing to remove need for external switches for MIMO operation, and a high-power PA eliminating the need for an external driver IC.
