Dual-Beam Active Beamforming IC Lineup
The company has expanded its portfolio of mmWave LNAs and Tx BFICs with the introduction of three new dual-beam active beamforming ICs: F6121 for Ku-band SATCOM; F6122 for Ka-band SATCOM, and F6123 for Ku-band radar and line-of-sight communications. Featuring best-in-class power consumption, noise figure, compact size, and ease of integration, these new ICs are a critical enabler of next-generation, low-latency electronically steered antennas for in-flight connectivity (IFC), maritime, SATCOM-on-the-move, and low earth orbit (LEO) ground terminals. The new F61xx Rx devices are the first commercial products to feature dual-beam capability for make-before-break or simultaneous multi-satellite, multi-orbit operation over the full Ku and Ka SATCOM bands. The F61xx offers OEMs the flexibility of LNA selection and placement for improved noise figure and system G/T performance.
