Low Noise Figure X-Band AESA Core IC Solution: AWS-0101

Anokiwave offers 4 ICs in the family of X-band silicon radar quad core IC solutions designed for use in commercial radar and 5G communications markets. Acting as a 4 channel beamformer, LNA, and PA, each IC supports 4 radiating elements with dual beam Rx, single beam Tx, and provides a low noise figure in Rx mode to allow for a complete silicon RF solution in commercial AESA systems.

The 4 models of IC solutions feature 6-bit phase and 6-bit gain control, gain compensation over temperature, temperature reporting, forward power telemetry with programmable delay power sampling, and fast beam switching. The silicon technology enables very high integration of functionality which enables planar antenna design in the X-band with reduced system size, weight, and cost. These highly integrated TDD transmit-receive chips are housed in commercial QFN-style surface mount plastic packages, and are controlled through a 5-wire serial to parallel interface (SPI) bus.
