Anokiwave Inc of San Diego, CA, USA – which provides highly integrated silicon core chips and III-V front-end integrated circuits for communications and radar applications needing millimeter-wave (mmW) active antenna-based solutions – has launched the next product in its new family of 5G-Gen 2 silicon quad core ICs that enable 3GPP-compliant base stations. With the worldwide release of the new 24/26GHz AWMF-0139 IC, the 5G-Gen 2 IC family now supports all major 5G mmW bands – 24/26GHz, 28GHz and 37/39GHz – and is part of Anokiwave’s on-going strategy to enable the commercialization of 5G mmW systems with silicon ICs.

The AWMF-0139 is a highly integrated silicon IC packaged in a wafer-level chip-scale package (WLCSP), easily fitting within the typical 5.77mm lattice spacing at 26GHz. It operates at 24.25-27.5GHz, supports four radiating elements, and includes gain and phase controls for analog RF beam steering. Anokiwave’s patent-pending IP blocks implemented in silicon technology are said to enable low-cost hybrid beam forming with high energy efficiency and 5G fast beam steering.

“5G operating frequencies around the world are converging on three mmW bands – 24/26GHz, 28GHz/ and 37/39GHz,” says chief systems architect David Corman. “As the push to roll out 5G networks is proceeding at full speed, Anokiwave is executing on an aggressive strategy to deliver 5G solutions with industry-first ICs at these important bands,” he adds. “Today’s announcement of the complete family of ICs that both enable 3GPP compliance and cover the important 5G bands is an essential step that allows network operators to roll out 5G coverage in earnest.”

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 of the AWMF-0139 are available now.
