AWMF-0221 24-30 GHz Dual Pol Quad 4x2 Beamformer IC

AWMF-0221 Beamformer IC Product Overview

NEW 24-30 GHz Dual Pol Quad 4x2 Beamformer IC

The AWMF-0221 is a highly integrated silicon RF beamforming IC (BFIC) built on Anokiwave’s proven quad channel, dual polarization CMOS platform. This modular architecture delivers industry leading antenna performance across multiple end user applications with benchmark linear RF power and DC power efficiency, seamlessly supporting higher signal bandwidths and modulations. Each BFIC includes beam steering controls for compliance with all 3GPP standards. Half duplex operation with dual polarization allows a single antenna aperture per sector coverage.

The new Gen-4 IC family supports OEMs goal of net-zero emissions and is industry's first multi-band solution providing higher EIRP and efficiency for smaller arrays, all while supporting higher bandwidth and modulations.
