Gapwaves presents the release of its 28 GHz active 5G-antenna with integrated GaN front-end MMIC's from Qorvo, a leading provider of innovative RF solutions. The 28 GHz high EIRP beam forming antenna with a high performing filter and transition from PCB to waveguide is a further development from the previous beamforming antenna. The integration of the dual channel GaN front-end module together with the beamforming chip-set demonstrates a state-of-the-art prototype built on standard components and Gapwaves waveguide technology. Measurements performed on the prototype have shown very good performance, high antenna efficiency with low losses and high EIRP, confirming the results that were presented earlier. The building practice of the active antenna has also shown excellent thermal performance.
