Tensorcom has announced that its TC60G1316UE System-In-Package (SIP) has achieved Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WiGig certification. The SIP brings robust, gigabit wireless connectivity to power-sensitive devices such as embedded devices, accessories, and portable products. The firm has also introduced two new USB 3.0 adapter reference designs.
Nant1 is a CMOS system-on-chip with integrated 60 GHz CMOS MAC/PHY and USB 3.0 controller/PHY. It includes all functions required to implement a complete WiGig solution for applications that require gigabit-per-second wireless data rates at low power and small form factor
The SIP, based on TC60G6504UE “Nant1” 802.11ad System-On-Chip, brings robust, gigabit wireless connectivity to power-sensitive devices that demand high-performance.
ABI Research forecasts more than one billion WiGig chipsets will ship in 2021 in applications ranging from wireless docking, multimedia streaming, high speed data transfer between devices, and networking applications. They further estimate 28% of smartphones will support WiGig by 2021.
“Tensorcom continues to set the standard for 60 GHz ultra-low power performance,” said Jim Chase, Tensorcom’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “Our Nant1 based WiGig solutions offer the highest level of integration in the market today and are ideal for products that demand high bandwidth wireless connectivity in a small package.”
The firm has also announced two new USB 3.0 adapter reference designs based on the Nant1 solution. The TC60G1422AE and TC60G1422CE reference designs are optimized for cost-effective manufacturing and support USB Type A and Type C connections, respectively.
Each design includes a high performance end-fire antenna that enables reliable multi-gigabit speed connectivity and includes all necessary hardware components, production ready firmware and drivers, detailed schematics and related documentation needed to develop a complete USB 3.0 WiGig adapter for embedded or accessory applications.
