Modeling and Simulating Otava mmWave Beamformer IC
Learn about modeling and simulating the single chip Otava beamformer IC (BFIC), a wideband 8-channel transmitter and receiver operating at mmWave frequencies.
Based on actual measurements, this Simulink model allows verifying and optimizing the system performance in different operating conditions while taking into account the impact of impedance mismatches, antenna arrays, and non-linearity. Circuit envelope RF simulation and testbenches will allow you to integrate the BFIC into wideband communications systems, including modulated waveforms and phased array beamforming algorithms. Using this model - representing the executable specifications of the BFIC - you’ll be able to calibrate the system and rapidly develop 5G, SATCOM, and DoD applications.
