The AWMF-0132 is a highly integrated silicon quad core IC intended for satellite communications applications. The device supports four dual polarization radiating elements with full polarization flexibility. The device provides 29 dB of gain with a noise figure of 2.0 dB. Additional features include gain compensation over temperature and temperature reporting. The chip features ESD protection on all pins, operates from a +1.2V supply, and is packaged in a 4.4 x 3.6 mm WLCSP (Wafer Level Chip Scale Package) for easy installation in planar phased array antennas.
