Anokiwave has extended its latest generation of 5G ICs to address the needs of the newly auctioned 26GHz 5G band in India.
Anokiwave Inc. has extended its latest generation of 5G ICs to address the needs of the newly auctioned 26GHz 5G band. With the industry’s highest efficiency, linear output power, and smart integration, Anokiwave’s latest generation of millimeter-wave (mmWave) ICs provides the foundation of high performance, small form factor, and low cost 5G radios. The same ICs can be used to address the needs of mmWave 5G base stations, small cells, consumer premise equipment (CPEs), and repeaters, to name a few. These ICs are the backbone of the majority of mmWave 5G build outs worldwide and now provide the 5G OEM, ODMs, and operators in India with an IC platform to accelerate India’s 26GHz network build out.
The new Gen-4 mmWave silicon ICs from Anokiwave offer a unique combination of the industry’s highest linear power, output efficiency devices and a scalable architecture to address multiple 5G use cases. To cover India’s 26GHz 5G band, the IC family includes the AWMF-0221 24GHz to 30GHz dual polarization, quad channel, beamforming IC; the AWMF-0224 24GHz to 30GHz dual channel IF up/down converter with integrated PLL/VCO; and the AWMF-0210 24GHz to 30GHz single channel IF up/down converter IC.
All ICs support 3GPP compliant 5G radio specs as well as high modulation bandwidths. To complement the IC portfolio, Anokiwave also offers a complete mmWave Active Antenna Innovator Kit as a reference design and starting platform to evaluate and accelerate mmWave 5G antenna designs.
“With the high user density and exponentially increasing demand for data per capita, India is uniquely and perfectly suited for adoption of mmWave 5G, and Anokiwave is delighted to bring its latest Gen-4 ICs to enable this build out,” stated Abhishek Kapoor, Anokiwave VP of Sales. “Since the start of the mmWave 5G market in 2016, Anokiwave has been the trusted choice of mmWave silicon ICs for the ODMs and operators worldwide. Today I am honored to bring this enabling technology to the country that I spent two decades growing up. I look forward to Anokiwave, the Indian network operators, industry players, and partners working together to democratize mmWave 5G technology for 1.4 billion people”
