Anokiwave’s Chief Systems Architect David Corman to Speak at IWPC's 5G mmWave Opportunities and Challenges Interactive Workshop

David W. Corman will present at the International Wireless Industry Consortium (IWPC) Interactive workshop entitled “5G mmWave Opportunities and Challenges” to be held October 16 – 18, 2017 in Austin, TX, USA

The World's Most Innovative Active Antenna Solutions for 5G Networks

San Diego CA, 12 October 2017:  Anokiwave, Inc., an innovative company providing highly integrated IC solutions for mmW markets and Active Antenna based solutions, today announced David W. Corman, Anokiwave’s Chief Systems Architect, will present at the IWPC Interactive Workshop entitled “5G mmWave Opportunities and Challenges” to be held October 16-18, 2016 in Austin, TX, USA. His presentation will be included in the Technology Enablers session on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017.

In the interactive workshop that will address the fundamental issues the industry faces as we approach the first release of the 5G standards, Mr. Corman will discuss how silicon based arrays are the path to mass industrialization of active antennas during his presentation entitled “Industrializing 5G mmW Radio Front Ends with High Performance, All-Silicon Arrays”.

“Beamforming in active antennas is not new technology and has been around for decades,” states Shmuel Ravid, Anokiwave Chief Engineer. “The revolutionary change is that we are able to industrialize these beamforming active antennas now for 5G. All-silicon arrays are very power efficient because we can place the IC directly at the radiating elements. In addition, the ICs allow for self-testing, eliminating the need to calibrate the array, thus offering a path to high volume manufacturing.”

Mr. Corman, a 37-year veteran in the mmW industry with 48 patents worldwide, has been the main systems architect for Anokiwave’s portfolio of silicon beamforming ICs, and firmly believes that increased integration and the elimination of array calibration are primary enablers for cost competitive, high volume 5G systems.
