Anokiwave showcasing portfolio of 24/26GHz silicon ICs for 5G networks at IMS

As the commercial launch of 5G services rapidly approaches and with the US FCC Auction 102 (24GHz band) just completing (raising over $2bn), 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 – is showcasing its portfolio of 24/26GHz ICs for 5G applications at IEEE’s International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2019) in Boston, MA, USA (2–9 June), where it is exhibiting in booth #223 and participating in the 5G summit.

Anokiwave introduced its initial family of 24/26GHz beam-former ICs in 2017, followed by the AWA-0142, a 256-element reconfigurable active antenna for rapid prototyping and testing of electronically beam-steered radio links in the 24/26GHz band and its 3GPP-compliant ICs in 2018. This year, the firm is building on these generations with a full RF signal chain that improves performance, reduces cost and provides a host of digital functionality that simplifies the active antenna array design. The AWMF-0165 Tx/Rx beamformer IC supports dual-polarization architectures while adding new and enhanced features to make 3GPP-compliant performance even easier, while the AWMF-0170 up/down-converter IC provides frequency conversion functionality and a x4 LO multiplier all integrated into a single IC.

The 3GPP n258 band (24.25–27.5GHz) – called the 24GHz band in the USA and the 26GHz band in Europe, China, and Australia – is likely to be the first of the mmWave bands to be allocated internationally on a widespread basis for wireless broadband services. While it is only one of several bands being considered in current international studies, it has been the subject of the heaviest focus for studies and has also garnered the most interest among countries for initial mmWave wireless broadband deployments.

“With the 24GHz auction in the US and the recent announcement by the EU to standardize on 26GHz for 5G, we see this band as critical in the roll-out of 5G worldwide,” says chief strategy officer Alastair Upton. “With over five years of focused innovation and three generations of ICs, Anokiwave is uniquely qualified to help make mmWave 5G in this band a commercial reality,” he believes.
