Werlatone, a supplier of advanced, high-power passive components, modules, and fully-integrated sub-system architectures for industrial applications, is offering solutions for beamforming applications over a wide operating frequency range by utilizing high-power, wideband multi-phased networks, enabling them to deliver high accuracy of signals to customers, especially for precision applications.
These systems operate over a frequency range from 20 MHz to 12 GHz with overlapping multi-octave or decade frequency bands. They are designed to handle input power in the order of kW up to 1 GHz, and several hundreds of Watts beyond this frequency. These multi-phased networks provide an RF phase resolution from 5.6 degrees all the way up to 90 degrees, resulting in more precision steering of the RF beam.
The integrated 90 Degree Quadrature and 180-Degree Hybrids support high power and extremely wide bandwidth applications for beamforming. Recently, Werlatone has collaborated with several antenna and amplifier manufacturers in designing custom and complex sub-system modules with higher functionalities and smaller footprints.
The company has also made advancements in designing reduced loss ferrite-loaded and stripline circuits, thereby lowering overall system loss and cost. This gives Werlatone the reputation as the go-to vendor in the RF and microwave industry for satisfying the toughest requirements. When a customer requires a plug-and-play solution, the company delivers a product that exceeds all expectations.
Additionally, their custom solutions interface well with other mating modules. Werlatone provides a platform to send specifications of the beamforming network based on the customer’s requirements using which a complete RF solution can be delivered.
