Satellite Communications RF IC Solutions

Renesas offers industry-leading microwave and millimeter-wave (mmWave) IC products for the satellite communications (Satcom) market, including low noise amplifiers (LNAs), high frequency synthesizers and RF beamforming ICs. These high-performance RF products, when combined with Renesas’s precision timing and power converter ICs, enable the realization of cost-effective, efficient, reliable, and low-profile phased array antenna solutions. 

Renesas’s Satcom products are designed for use in next-generation airborne, maritime and ground-based Satcom systems supporting existing GEO and/or emerging LEO/MEO satellite constellations. Our ICs are designed to support all of the popular bands and architectures associated with the rapidly evolving Satcom market.

Renesas’s beamformer IC portfolio consists of a family of three transmit (Tx) and three receive (Rx) RFICs supporting the three popular Satcom frequency bands of Ku, K/Ka and CDL. These ICs are designed to simplify the implementation of a phased-array antenna and greatly reduce the typical thermal management and calibration requirements associated with phased arrays, thereby enabling a lower overall solution cost.
