Ka band Transceiver
Linwave Technology have utilised their chip and wire capability to develop a small and highly integrated Transmit and Receive Module. The unit can be tailored to cover either the commercial or military frequencies at Ka band. The design incorporates advanced PTFE based low loss metal backed laminates; which results in a solution that allow high levels of integration on both the RF and control boards.
The product is an array based solution with the capability of both gain and phase control on each channel. The design approach is modular to allow flexibility in the required array size and subsequent configuration. Attenuation control is typically over a 20dB range with either 5 or 6 bit phase control.
The unit is further enhanced by a customer GUI allowing the user individual control over channel elements.
The existing design utilises 30GHz as Tx, but can be modified for alternate applications.
