Anokiwave Inc of San Diego, CA, USA – which provides highly integrated silicon core chips and III-V front-end integrated circuits for millimeter-wave (mmW) markets and active antenna-based solutions – has opened a millimeter-wave design verification laboratory in its San Diego office, enabling rapid characterization of its product portfolio of mmW ICs for 5G, SatCom, and radar markets.
The lab includes test instrumentation and wafer probing capability up to 50GHz that supports both rapid characterization of new products and increased applications engineering evaluation capacity.
“Investing in the facility in San Diego will increase our design verification capacity, which ultimately improves our time-to-market,” says founder & chief technology officer Nitin Jain. The new lab is “the latest example of Anokiwave’s commitment to the emerging mmW 5G, SatCom and radar markets,” he adds.
Anokiwave says that the new lab space allows it to continue to aid the evolution of the active antenna market with industrialized, production-ready products for millimeter-wave active antennas.
