The AWS-0103 is a highly integrated silicon quad core IC operating between 8.5 and 10.55 GHz intended for radar and 5G phased array applications such as commercial and weather radars. The device supports four radiating elements, single beam transmit and dual beam receive, and includes all requisite beam steering controls for 6 bit phase and gain control for beam steering and shaping. When combined with the X-band front-end IC, the chipset is a plug and play antenna solution that reduces SWaP-C for high-power AESA radars. The beamformer IC has 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.
