AWS-0102 K-Band Core IC Solution

San Diego CA, 15 September 2015:  Anokiwave, Inc., an innovative company providing highly integrated core IC solutions for mmW and AESA markets, today announced the worldwide release of the next product in its family of Quad Core IC solutions. The AWS-0102 K-Band Silicon SATCOM Rx Quad Core IC supports 4 dual polarization radiating elements with full programmable polarization flexibility. The device provides 22 dB of gain with a noise figure of 3.4 dB at 20 GHz. Additional features include system controlled gain compensation over temperature and temperature reporting via the serial control bus. Silicon technology enables very high integration of functionality thus enabling planar antenna design at K-band with reduced system size, weight, and cost.

“This latest product release is the second in our series of Silicon AESA Quad Core ICs that we believe will set a new standard in the industry for AESA multi-element beam forming ICs,” states Robert Donahue, Anokiwave CEO. “Anokiwave is continuing to innovate and deliver parts that will revolutionize multiple markets with affordable AESA solutions.”

The Anokiwave AWS-0102 is a highly integrated receiver IC in a commercial QFN style surface mount plastic package with dimensions of 7mm x 7mm x 0.9mm, with ESD protection on all pins. The IC is controlled though a 5-wire serial to parallel interface (SPI) bus.

Anokiwave offers Developer and Innovator Kits to customers for early access to the technology. The kits include boards with the AWS-0102 device, USB-SPI Interface module with drivers, and all required cables.
