The AWMF-0224 is the industry’s first fully integrated dual channel IF up/down converter 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, FDD support for simultaneous operation of Tx and Rx, LO multiplexing to remove need for external switches for MIMO operation, and a high-power PA eliminating the need for an external driver IC.
