New Phased Array Technology, BeamDirect™, is Announced

June 3, 2013
Tahoe RF Semiconductor has announced BeamDirect™, their new phased array technology for commercial and military applications.

A new phased array technology, BeamDirect™, to be used for both commercial and military applications has been announced by Tahoe RF Semiconductor. BeamDirect™ helps to improve the bandwidth and sensitivity of phased array radio systems and helps facilitate fine beam steering angle resolutions.

It has also been implemented as a single chip solution in standard CMOS IC processes, delivering more flexibility as well as making improvements in size, weight and power (SWaP) from similar versions.

BeamDirect™ can be applied in a variety of different situations. In point-to-point communication links, BeamDirect™ keeps the links active when radios get misaligned due to external problems, such as inclement weather. Similarly, with satellite communication links BeamDirect™ helps maintain directionality of electronically received signals without requiring manual alignment. It can also be used for navigation systems, satellite TV receivers, and signal intelligence systems.
