Anokiwave, Inc. has completed a Series C funding round led by a new investor, Gefinor Capital with US Boston Capital Corporation and its affiliate Pear Tree Partners. The funding will support the development of silicon-based RFICs for 5G, satellite communications and aerospace and defense markets.
Anokiwave, Inc. and Ball Aerospace announced a collaboration on May 9, 2017 that will enable the 5G wireless revolution. The collaboration accelerates mmWave 5G phased array developments with the introduction of a family of commercial, active phased array Innovator Kits. Included are kit offerings like the 64-element, 28 GHz AWMF-0129 enable improved mmWave 5G network efficiency and ease of developing commercial phased array antennas.
Anokiwave, Inc. today announced the expansion of its family of Ka-band 5G ICs with the worldwide release of the first commercially available 39 GHz silicon active antenna quad core ICs for 5G communications markets.
Anokiwave announced the introduction of the first in a family of Phased Array Antenna Innovator’s Kits, the AWMF-0129, driven by the Anokiwave AWMF-0108 28GHz 5G Quad Core IC with embedded functions for remote telemetry and low-latency steering™. The AWMF-0129 is a 64-element, single polarization 5G phased array antenna designed to cover the 27.5 to 30 GHz frequency band. It is a planar antenna that can be used either as a stand-alone component, or combined and synchronized with other arrays.
Introducing flexible multi-function silicon ICs for mmW communication and sensing applications. The ICs are for active arrays intended for SATCOM, RADAR, and TDD/FDD applications. The devices have switchable outputs and can support half-duplex operation. The AWMF-0117 operates at 10.5 to 16 GHz and the AWMF-0116 operates at 26 to 30 GHz.
Anokiwave offers a family of Active Antenna ICs at X and K/Ka-bands for 5G, commercial RADAR, and SATCOM markets. Supported with expert systems engineering and optimal technology solutions, our highly integrated Core ICs and System-in-Package solutions provide our customers the fastest-time-to-market. Anokiwave’s patent-pending IP blocks implemented in silicon technology enable low-cost hybrid beam forming.
