Sivers IMA Introduces World’s First Transceiver Chip for FCC’s New V-Band Frequencies

Sivers IMA have introduced the world’s first transceiver chip which includes coverage of the new FCC V-band frequencies 64-71 GHz, that were recently made available in the United States. The complete transceiver has been developed on Silicon-Germanium. This transceiver module for the V-band, provides a fundamental platform, including the relevant building blocks, for their ongoing development of the WiGig RFIC, that will be released to the market in 2017.

The transceiver is packaged in a eWLB capsule for easy surface mounting on printed circuit boards and only measures 7x7mm. Since all parts are developed in Silicon-Germanium technology, the cost of the transceiver can be kept low and Sivers IMA will be able to offer products with very good price performance to manufacturers of point-to-point links. In the final version of this product, the circuit will cover the entire V-Band in US, covering from 57 GHz to 71 GHz. Prototypes of the circuit will be available to key customers in Q1 2017.
