AWS-0104 X-Band Single Tx/Rx BFIC

AWS-0104 Beamformer IC Product Overview

X-Band Single Beam Tx/Rx Beamformer IC

The AWS-0104 is a highly integrated silicon quad core IC intended for radar and 5G phased array applications. The device supports four radiating elements, single beam transmit and receive, and includes all requisite beam steering controls for 6 bit phase and gain control for beam steering and shaping.

When combined with a T/R switch the BFIC is a plug and play antenna solution that reduces SWaP-C for low power AESA RADARs. The BFIC features direct SPI programming of gain and phase and the ability to daisy chain SPI control between multiple ICs. It operates from a single positive power supply.
