The CGY2179HV/C1 is a high performance QFN packaged T/R 4–bit Core Chip operating in Ku-band. It includes a 4-bit phase shifter and an LNA. It has a phase shifting range of 360°, and a LSB of 22.5°. It covers the frequency range from 10.7 to 12.75 GHz and can be used in telecommunication, radar, antennas, and Instrumentation applications. The on-chip control logic with serial input register minimizes the number of bonding pads and greatly simplifies the interfacing to this device.
This die is manufactured using ED02AH OMMIC’s 180 nm gate length pHEMT technology. The MMIC uses gold bonding pads and backside metallization and is fully protected with Silicon Nitride passivation to obtain the highest level of reliability. This technology has been evaluated for space applications and is on the European Preferred Parts List of the European Space Agency (ESA).
