- Extending the link range to decrease infrastructure costs and improve customer satisfaction.
- Reducing power consumption and thermal dissipation.
- Reducing antenna array complexity and overall RF front-end cost.
Operating from 24.25 to 27.5 GHz, the SUMMIT 2427e RFIC integrates power amplifiers (PA), low noise amplifiers, T/R switching, beamformers with beam table memory, calibration, gain control and temperature and power telemetry with a high-speed system peripheral interface (SPI) for control. A single SUMMIT 2427e provides two sets of four channels for two antenna polarizations – a total of eight channels per RFIC.
