NXP SEMICONDUCTORS MMW9012K and MMW9014K 4-channel dual polarized analog beamformers support dual-polarization to improve 5G reliability and offer a high degree of integration to help reduce 5G base station size and costs, as well as reduce current consumption for 5G mmWave solutions. The dual-polarized, 4-channel analog devices enable more precise steering of simultaneous beams to users, mitigating the propagation loss common to 5G mmWave deployments and improving overall system reliability. MMW9012K operates at 28GHz, while the MMW9014K operates at 26GHz. Devices provide a high transmit and receive gain with EVM at 2.5% at Pout of 9dBm.
