Beamformers

Analog Devices offers best-in-class, high channel count density beamformers for optimum scalability, highest performance and small size. These beamformers integrate multiple channels, each having independent phase and amplitude control in its transmit and receive paths, allowing the RF and microwave front end to electronically steer the antenna beams for optimum transmission aiming pattern. The high level of integration enables systems, whether they are for communications, radar, electronic warfare or radio uses, to deliver higher levels of performance in a smaller size while reducing system costs.
