Anokiwave Showcasing its Silicon Active Antenna Array IC's for 5G at MWC

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, Anokiwave's 5G ICs are powering more than 10 customer 5G arrays at 26 GHz, 28 GHz and 38 GHz. More than 10 Anokiwave Active Antenna Innovator Kits, driven by it's 5G ICs are being featured at several partner booths in Barcelona.

As part of its strategy to enable mm-Wave 5G systems by industrializing planar active antennas with silicon core ICs, Anokiwave has introduced market leading silicon ICs at each of the major mmW bands - 26 GHz, 28 GHz and 39 GHz. The AWMF-0108 IC, first introduced in 2016, operates at 26.5 - 29.5 GHz, the AWMF-0123/5 ICs, introduced in 2017, operate at 37.1 - 40.0 GHz, while the AWMF-0135, introduced in 2017, operates at 24.25 - 27.5 GHz. Each of the quad core ICs feature embedded functions for remote telemetry and low-latency steeringtm.

To demonstrate the performance achievable using low power silicon integration and efficient antenna layout and design, Anokiwave and its partner Ball Aerospace, have introduced a family of Active Antenna Innovator Kits at 26 GHz and 28 GHz. The 64-element and 256-element Active Antennas lead the way in showing how 5G coverage can be rolled out by network operators using the mmW bands, with low power footprint and high energy efficiency, while meeting key operating specifications for data rate, latency, coverage, and reliability.
