Anokiwave Extends its 5G Beamforming IC Portfolio to Accelerate India's 26 GHz 5G Network
Anokiwave, an innovative company providing highly integrated silicon ICs for millimeter-wave (mmW) ICs, has extended its latest and industry-leading 4th generation of 5G ICs to address the needs of the newly auctioned 26 GHz 5G band. With the industry's highest efficiency, linear output power, and smart integration, Anokiwave's latest generation provides the foundation of high performance, small form factor, and low-cost 5G radios. The same ICs can be used to address the needs of mmW 5G base stations, small cells, Consumer Premise Equipment (CPEs), repeaters, and more. These ICs are the backbone of the majority of mmW 5G build-outs worldwide and now provide the 5G OEM, ODMs, and operators in India with an IC platform to accelerate India's 26 GHz network build-out.
Anokiwave's Latest 5G Solutions
The new Gen-4 mmW silicon ICs from Anokiwave offer a unique combination of the industry's highest linear power, output efficiency devices and scalable architecture to address multiple 5G use cases. To cover the India 26 GHz 5G band, the IC family includes:
- AWMF-0221: 24 to 30 GHz dual polarization, quad channel, beamforming IC
- AWMF-0224: 24 to 30 GHz dual channel IF up/ down converter with integrated PLL/ VCO
- AWMF-0210: 24 to 30 GHz single channel IF up/down converter IC.
All ICs support 3GPP compliant 5G radio specs as well as high modulation bandwidths. To complement the IC portfolio, Anokiwave also offers a complete mmWave Active Antenna Innovator Kit as a reference design and starting platform to evaluate and accelerate mmW 5G antenna designs.
Anokiwave's Gen-4 ICs offer some unique benefits for ODMs, OEMs, and Operators developing mmW 5G radios:
- Just two (2) IC types to build a complete mmW to IF 26 GHz 5G Active Antenna
- Fewest ICs for high-performance mmW 5G active antenna front ends
- Small form factor and lower DC power by leveraging high power efficiency (PAE%) and smart integration
- Eliminate the need for radio level calibration by leveraging the patented Zero-Cal feature
- Flexibility to scale the design to meet specific radio performance, cost, power, and baseband requirements
- Faster time to market by leveraging already available mmW antenna Innovator Kits
"With the high user density and exponentially increasing demand for data per capita, India is uniquely and perfectly suited for adoption of mmW 5G, and Anokiwave is delighted to bring its latest Gen-4 ICs to enable this build-out," stated Abhishek Kapoor, Anokiwave VP of Sales. "Since the start of the mmW 5G market in 2016, Anokiwave has been the trusted choice of mmW silicon ICs for the ODMs and operators worldwide. Today I am honored to bring this enabling technology to the country where I spent two decades growing up. I look forward to Anokiwave, the Indian network operators, industry players, and partners working together to democratize mmW 5G technology for 1.4 billion people"
All mentioned ICs and antennas are available to use now.
