For Immediate Release
Boston, MA February 8, 2022: Anokiwave, Inc., the leader in highly integrated, cost-effective silicon-based IC solutions for the millimeter-wave (mmW) and active antenna markets, today introduced its 4th generation high efficiency multi-band silicon IC family. The new IC family greatly pushes the levels of performance and cost to a point where network operators can start to accelerate the builds of greener, lower cost, and smaller form factor mmW 5G radios, for every 3GPP FR2 band.
The first ICs in this family are the 24 to 30 GHz AWMF-0221, a dual-quad channel, dual polarization beamforming IC, and the AWMF-0210, a wideband IF up/down converter IC. The two ICs together provide a complete mmW to IF signal chain solution for n257, n258, and n261 frequency bands (24 – 30 GHz) while meeting all 3GPP specs, supporting high signal and 5G NR modulation bandwidths as well as 802.11ac/802.11ax waveforms for private wireless networks. The new ICs offer a unique combination of industry’s highest linear power and output power efficiency. This 4th generation marks the continued year over year innovation and leadership delivering ICs that truly enable higher performing, lower cost, smaller form factor and greener 5G radios.
The new ICs offer a wide range of benefits for 5G OEMs and network operators, such as:
“With 5G mmW infrastructure poised to increase exponentially in the next few years, Anokiwave’s technology provides a comprehensive signal chain solution for 5G arrays optimized for each use case,” said Robert S Donahue, Anokiwave CEO. “We have taken the learning from 3 previous generations to advance the state of the art in RF and DC performance and lowered the total cost of ownership by >30% of customer antennas with our Gen-4. This is recognized by our customers as we have multiple design wins already that are ramping in 2022.”
The new ICs are available and recommended for new designs. Anokiwave offers evaluation kits that include complete and fully tested evaluation boards, ICs, USB-SPI interface module with drivers, graphical user interface, and all required cables.
