Anokiwave Showcasing World’s First 39 GHz Silicon Active Antenna ICs for 5G Applications

At IMS 2017, Anokiwave is showcasing its family of Ka-band 5G ICs. The AWMF-0123/5 are the first commercially available 39 GHz silicon active antenna quad core ICs. They are aimed at the future 5G communications markets.

The active antenna ICs operate at 37.1 to 40 GHz, support 4 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 steering.

The AWMF 0123 and AWMF 0125 are highly integrated silicon ICs packaged in a wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP), easily fitting within the typical 3.8 mm lattice spacing at 39 GHz. The ICs are controlled via Anokiwave's patented SPI interface and feature ESD protection on all pins. They are packaged in a 3.70 x 3.74 mm WLCS package for easy installation in planar phased array antennas.

Anokiwave is offering evaluation kits to simplify the adoption of this technology. The kits include boards with the IC, USB–SPI Interface module with drivers, and all required cables. Pilot production deliveries are available in July 2017. Stop by their booth at IMS 2017 to learn more.
