BFIC Family Product Overview



The 5G mmW beamforming ICs are highly integrated silicon quad-core dual-pol ICs intended for 5G phased array applications. The ICs have eight antenna ports that can be connected to four dual-pol antenna elements to support both horizontal and vertical polarizations in a phased array. Two common ports, one for each polarization, enable simultaneous processing of both polarizations. The devices include all requisite beam steering controls for phase and gain control and operate in half duplex fashion to enable a single antenna to support both Tx and Rx operation. The ICs provide extensive functionality that simplifies the design of active antenna arrays. The scalable architecture underpinning the IC family supports everything from mmW 5G macro cells to small cells to customer premises equipment (CPE).
