Source: Anokiwave.Anokiwave, a San Diego, California-based provider of integrated circuit (IC) solutions for communications and RADAR applications, is adding to its portfolio of millimeter-wave (mmW) 5G products with a family of ICs that support 3GPP NR compliant solutions.

Two new products were announced earlier this week: the 39 GHz AWMF-0156 IC and the 28 GHz AWMF-0157 IC. Both are second-generation 5G Silicon Quad Core ICs, and represent components of Anokiwave’s ongoing strategy to enable the commercialization of 5G mmW systems with silicon ICs. Anokiwave’s patent-pending IP blocks implemented in silicon technology are designed to enable low-cost hybrid beam forming with high energy efficiency and low latency beam steering.

Additional specs:

  • The AWMF-0156 IC operates at 37.1 - 40.0 GHz, supports four radiating elements and includes gain and phase controls for analog RF beam steering. As a highly integrated silicon IC packaged in a wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP), it fits easily within the typical 3.8 mm lattice spacing at 39 GHz.
  • The AWMF-0157 IC operates at 26.5 – 29.5 GHz, supports four radiating elements and includes gain and phase controls for analog RF beam steering. As a highly integrated silicon IC packaged in a wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP), it fits easily within the typical 5.3 mm lattice spacing at 28 GHz.
  • The AWMF-0135 was also announced in late 2017. It operates at 24.25 - 27.5 GHz, supports four radiating elements and includes gain and phase controls for analog RF beam steering. As a highly integrated half-duplex transmit-receive IC in a commercial 6x6 mm QFN-style surface mount plastic package, it fits easily within the typical 5.8 lattice spacing at 26 GHz.

Anokiwave offers evaluation kits for ease of adoption of the technology and capabilities. The kits include boards with the IC, USB-SPI interface module with drivers and all required cables. Pilot production deliveries are available in May 2018.
