Active mmWave antennas will be deployed in unprecedented volumes over the next few years as 5G networks are now entering commercial deployment. The design of mmWave array antennas will play a crucial role in the proliferation of 5G applications. The question of how to accelerate product development and overcome technical challenges to grasp the opportunities in the 5G future was the focus of Anokiwave’s recent "5G mmWave Array Antenna Design Technology Seminar" hosted by DIGITIMES. The one-day seminar took place in Taipei, Taiwan and was met with overwhelming enthusiasm and response.

The seminar provided Anokiwave the opportunity to discuss its mmWave IC solutions supporting multiple 5G use cases from macro-cells to CPE. Ball Aerospace, Auden Techno Corp., and ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute) also participated in the seminar and shared their views and experiences in the mmWave 5G market.

“The sizable number of workshop participants is a testimony of Taiwan’s strong interest in the mmWave 5G market,” states Ke Lu, Anokiwave Associate VP for Marketing and Strategy. “This further proves that Taiwan is the right place to find partners to continue to make mmWave 5G a commercial reality.”

“Working with Taiwanese companies with strong electronics manufacturing capabilities is critical,” states Alan Chang, Anokiwave Asia-Pacific Director of Sales. “Combining Anokiwave's technical solutions with Taiwan's manufacturing capabilities will accelerate the implementation of 5G mmWave applications.”

Anokiwave’s unique and advanced design capabilities enable the industry’s highest performing 3GPP compliant 5G radios with application from 5G infrastructure to Consumer Premise Equipment (CPE). The company has recently introduced its 3rd generation of mmWave dual polarization 5G beamformer ICs at 24/26, 28 and 37/39 GHz. Utilizing 300 mm Silicon CMOS process, Anokiwave ICs provide the optimum balance of low cost and high performance. Thereby, today Anokiwave is the industry’s trusted provider of mmWave Silicon ICs for high volume commercial deployments of 5G systems worldwide.
