IQ-Analog Antenna Processor ASIC Powers Lockheed Martin Phased Array Sensors

F1000 ASIC Provides Full-Spectrum Conversion® for Lockheed Martin's Software Defined Phased Array Sensors in Next Generation Radar and Communication Systems

www.prnewswire.com, Jan. 06, 2021 – 

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- IQ-Analog Corporation today announced that its Full-Spectrum Conversion® wideband transceiver F1000 Antenna Processor Unit (APU) has been successfully integrated into Lockheed Martin Corporation's next generation digital prototype active electronically scanned phased array (AESA) sensor. The F1000 is a monolithic application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) that was developed by IQ-Analog to address next generation radar, communications and electronic warfare systems that are transitioning from legacy analog to all-digital antenna processing.

The new inflection point in converged AESA systems is the ability to dynamically reconfigure the array architecture through cognitive software control. This drives a digital processing paradigm that demands elemental digital beamforming which requires ultra-wide conversion bandwidth with digital frequency translation at every array element. These next generation sensor systems offer concurrent spatial beams and the ability to perform simultaneous radar, communications, and electronic warfare converged functions. Lockheed Martin, together with IQ-Analog, have developed a highly reconfigurable multi-function wideband sensor capability as part of Lockheed Martin's Broadband Electromagnetic Aperture (BEMA) program.
