For Immediate Release
San Diego CA, 29 November, 2016: Anokiwave, Inc., an innovative company providing highly integrated core IC solutions for mmW markets and AESA based solutions, today announced their inaugural 5G Quad Core IC, the AWMF-0108, has been named the best new communications product for 2016 by Electronic Design. The AWMF-0108 is the world’s first commercially available Ka-band quad core IC for 5G.
The AWMF-0108 is designed to enable active beamforming antennas for fixed and mobile access 5G networking equipment. It operates in the 27.5-30.0 GHz band, supports 4 Tx/Rx radiating elements, and includes all requisite beam steering controls for 5-bit phase and gain control. The device operates in half duplex, enabling a single antenna to support both Tx and Rx operation. Packaged in a 48-pin 6x6mm QFN, the device easily fits within the 28 GHz lattice space. Anokiwave’s patent-pending IP blocks implemented in silicon technology enable low-cost hybrid beam forming for multi-antenna arrays with high energy efficiency.
“It is clear that low-cost beamforming at the aperture is a fundamental component of successful 5G systems deployment,” states David Corman, Anokiwave Chief Systems Architect. “Commercially viable beamforming will require IC solutions with increased functional density and capability within a single die/package, thus enabling large-scale planar arrays. Anokiwave is well positioned for this market with products available now for early 5G trials.”
