The MATRICs from BAE Systems is an Advanced Reconfigurable RF Transceiver chipset that addresses future requirements of communications, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence systems. It operates from 10 MHz to 4 GHz and delivers a total gain of up to 50 dB with a noise figure of up to 10 dB. This highly adaptable chip enables engineers to develop customized radio systems in the field, without the need for modified, application-specific chips that are expensive and time-consuming to develop.
The MATRICs transceiver transmits and receives multiple channels simultaneously. It covers a broad range of radio waveforms so that different types of system architectures can be designed around it, including systems that need wide spectrum awareness and adaptability to dynamic signal environments. Reduced size, weight, and power make MATRICs an ideal solution for applications where lightweight and low power are at a premium.
