The AWS-0105 from Anokiwave is an X-Band Beamformer quad-core silicon IC that operates from 8.5 to 10.55 GHz. It supports four radiating elements. This beamformer IC supports single beam transmit and receive and includes all requisite beam steering controls for the 6-bit phase and gain control for beam steering and shaping. It can be combined with the AWMF-0106 X-Band front-end IC to make a module that is a plug-and-play antenna solution and reduces SWaP-C for high-power AESA RADARs. This beamformer IC 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 and is ideal for commercial & weather radars and 5G communications applications.
