This whitepaper provides a holistic view of the mmW 5G market, its benefits, and its future, followed by technical discussion of various tools and resources available to succeed in this market and how Anokiwave is enabling the mmW 5G radio market as a trusted supplier and partner for OEMs and ODMs.
Anokiwave, Inc. introduced both its fourth generation of high efficiency multi-band Si IC beamformer ICs as well as industry’s first single-chip dual channel IF up-/down-converter with fully integrated LO synthesizer.
Anokiwave, Inc. introduced its fourth generation high efficiency multi-band Si-based IC family, pushing levels of performance and cost so network operators can start to accelerate the builds of greener, lower cost and smaller form factor mmWave 5G radios, for every 3GPP FR2 band.
As the market demand for mmW 5G grows, there is a greater need for market readiness and choices for equipment and devices especially using the lower profile active antenna technology. However, mmW 5G active antenna design continues to be a challenge for most OEMs, system integrators, and radio manufacturers who have largely operated in sub-6 GHz technologies, posing a steep learning curve for utilizing mmW active antennas.
Anokiwave silicon core IC technologies have been used to enable mmW 5G radio systems since 2016 and are the underpinnings of large portion of deployed 5G networks today. Since then, each year Anokiwave has released new generations of silicon ICs in all mmW 5G bands, all of which are in volume production and used by industry’s leading players in fielded radios. Anokiwave’s ICs enable industry’s best performing, smallest form factor, lowest cost, and lowest DC power mmW 5G radios.
To further accelerate this mmW 5G market growth, Anokiwave is now introducing it’s scalable mmW active antenna solutions and partnerships with multiple baseband companies. Anokiwave continues to lay a path for the industry to adopt mmW active antennas at a commercial scale and make mmW 5G a reality for all.
