Anokiwave To Exhibit 5G Range At MWC
Company to show devices for 26 GHz, 28 GHz and 39 GHz systems
Anokiwave, a company providing silicon and compound semiconductor IC solutions for millimeter-wave markets, is exhibiting at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona Spain (26th February to 1st March 2018) .
"5G is one of the most anticipated advances in the telecommunications industry," states Robert Donahue Anokiwave CEO. "As 5G wireless network deployments are expected world-wide as early as 2018, Anokiwave stands ready to equip service providers and OEMs with innovative ICs in large volumes for all major 5G mmW bands."Anokiwave 5G ICs will power more than ten customer 5G arrays at all three mmW 5G bands - 26 GHz, 28 GHz and 39 GHz. In addition, more than ten Anokiwave Active Antenna Innovator Kits, driven by Anokiwave 5G ICs will be featured at several of its partner booths.
The AWMF-0108 IC, first introduced in 2016, operates at 26.5 "“ 29.5 GHz, the AWMF-0123/5 ICs, introduced in 2017, operate at 37.1 "“ 40.0 GHz, while the AWMF-0135, introduced in 2017, operates at 24.25 "“ 27.5 GHz. Each of the quad core ICs feature embedded functions for remote telemetry and low-latency steeringtm.
To demonstrate the performance achievable using low power silicon integration and efficient antenna layout and design, Anokiwave and its partner Ball Aerospace, have introduced a family of Active Antenna Innovator Kits at 26 GHz and 28 GHz.
The 64-element and 256-element Active Antennas are said to lead the way in showing how 5G coverage can be rolled out by network operators using the mmW bands, with low power footprint and high energy efficiency, while meeting key operating specifications for data rate, latency, coverage, and reliability.
