Anokiwave Gen-2 Ku and K/Ka-Band Silicon Beamformer ICs in Large Scale Production at GLOBALFOUNDRIES
Anokiwave’s 2nd Generation of Ku and K/Ka band Silicon Beamformer ICs for SATCOM market are in Full Volume Production, with a Turnkey Solution in partnership with GLOBALFOUNDRIES. These ICs serve as industry’s trusted choice to enable Flat Panel Electrically Steered Antennas for LEO/MEO/ GEO and Satcom-on-the-Move (SOTM).

Anokiwave, Inc., industry’s largest commercial volume supplier of highly integrated mmW Silicon Core ICs, today announces the high-volume availability of its latest generation of Ku and K/Ka band Silicon ICs for Flat Panel Electronically Steered Antennas. The second generation of SATCOM ICs - AWMF-0132 ⁄ 0133 and AWMF-0146 ⁄ 0147 Quad channel, dual polarization beamformer ICs – enable Ku and K/Ka band flat panel phased array active antennas for SATCOM ground terminals and aero equipment for LEO/MEO/GEO and SATCOM-on-the-move (SOTM) and are already tested and in use on multiple live satellite links. Anokiwave is the only company today that has been commercially shipping mmW Silicon beamformer ICs in high volume, across SATCOM (Ku and Ka), 5G, and Radar bands.

Combining Anokiwave’s innovation that allows the ICs to span the mmW use case spectrum with intelligent array solutions with our partner GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ strength in full turnkey production and mmW test capabilities, the two leading companies are leveraging high volume production and technical learning of all mmW markets into the SATCOM products which reduces risk to customers, provides the lowest cost solution available, and allows very quick time-to-market.

Anokiwave’s 2nd generation SATCOM beamformer ICs builds on our previous generation of beamformer ICs to improve performance, reduce cost, simplify thermal management, and provide a host of unique digital functionality to simplify overall system design. Compared to multiple other companies that are just beginning to promise their early stage ICs, Anokiwave ICs are fully released and have been shipping in volume to tier 1 and 2 SATCOM OEMS. These ICs have been used to build and deploy radios that have been setup with live Satellite communication links and offer a level of confidence to ensure first pass design success.
