Anokiwave Launches 2nd Generation K/Ka-Band Silicon Beamformer ICs

Anokiwave has released the 2nd generation K/Ka-Band SATCOM Beamformer IC family for the design and commercial deployment of phased array-based ground terminals. The new K/Ka-Band ICs - the AWMF-0132 K-Band Rx IC and the AWMF-0133 Ka-Band Tx IC - enable active antenna based phased array SATCOM ground terminals that can auto-align, auto-position and support SATCOM-on-the-move using LEO/MEO/GEO satellites.

The new IC family builds on our 1st generation of beamformer ICs, improving performance, reducing cost, and providing a host of digital functionality that simplifies the active antenna array design. The highly integrated AWMF-0132 K-Band Rx IC and the AWMF-0133 Ka-Band Tx IC both support four dual polarization radiating elements with full polarization flexibility. Using a small 4.4 mm x 3.6 mm WLCSP (Wafer Level Chip Scale Package) makes the overall phased array assembly and thermal management even easier.

The AWMF-0132 and AWMF-0133 are available to the general market. Click here for more information on SATCOM Beamformer IC's from Anokiwave.
