01 February 2018

Anokiwave, Inc., a provider of highly integrated IC solutions for mmW markets and active antenna based Source: Anokiwave, Inc.Source: Anokiwave,, has announced the latest product in its family of mmW Phased Array Antenna Innovator’s Kits. The AWA-0142 is driven by the Anokiwave AWMF-0135 26GHz 5G Quad Core IC with embedded functions for remote telemetry and low-latency steering™.

The 256-element, reconfigurable active electronically scanned antenna covers the 24.25 – 27.5 GHz band and delivers +60 dBmi (1 KW) of EIRP with an effective Rx NF of 5dB. The Anokiwave Active Antennas are the first commercially available family of phased-arrays that enable the development and measurement of radio links and channel models, and are also suited for rapid prototyping and testing of electronically beam-steered radio links through low-latency beam update rates.

Developed with Ball Aerospace for mmW 5G wireless markets, the AWA-0142 includes an integrated controller that can steer the beams to predetermined positions within a wide scan volume with minimal latency and system sensitivity.


The AWA-0142 Innovator’s Kits are available now. Customers may also license the technology for their own array development activities.
