Anokiwave Will Showcase Products for 5G, RADAR and SATCOM at IMS2017

May 30, 2017

Anokiwave, Inc. will continue its presence at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium with participation in 5G Summit session, the 5G backhaul technologies workshop and the exposition at Booth #1558. Anokiwave senior staff will be on hand to discuss our latest product breakthroughs for 5G communications, X-Band RADAR and SATCOM

Anokiwave has recently introduced two market-leading products for the mmWave 5G market. The AWMF-0123/5 silicon ICs are the world’s first commercially available 39 GHz active antenna quad core ICs. They operate at 37.1 to 40 GHz, support four radiating elements, and include 5-bit phase control and 5-bit gain control for analog RF beam steering. Anokiwave’s patent-pending IP blocks implemented in silicon technology enable low-cost hybrid beam forming with high energy efficiency and low latency beam steeringtm.

The AWMF-0129-IK is the world’s first commercially available 28 GHz 5G phased array active antenna. It is 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 to support hybrid beamforming and MIMO functionality as part of larger array. The array is driven by the Anokiwave AWMF-0108 28GHz 5G silicon quad core IC with embedded functions for remote telemetry and low-latency steeringtm.

“Anokiwave has over a decade of experience designing silicon mmWave active antenna ICs and is proud to be the first to market with products for mmWave 5G networks,” states Dr. Nitin Jain, Anokiwave founder and CTO. “Our value and excellence are proven by our excellence in IC design and innovation and by the fact that we are the only company in the market with extremely competitive mmW Si ICs for phased array applications.”
