Sivers Semiconductors AB has announced that its Japanese lead customer Fujikura, after several successful customer trials, is now preparing the start of full-scale, high-quality volume production of their 60 GHz communication module.
Sivers Semiconductors and Fujikura have worked closely together for several years in a joint effort to offer this competitive 60 GHz communication module. Fujikura has developed a compact communication module including a baseband wireless modem function and an antenna with an included RF front end RFIC from Sivers Semiconductors (TRX BF/01). This module developed by Fujikura is built on their own low loss liquid crystal polymer (LCP) material and Fujikura antenna design.
Kiyoshi Kobayashi, Product Owner of the 60 GHz communication module at Fujikura explains: “We have been working very tightly with Sivers Semiconductors for several years and they have provided excellent guidance and support during the development and integration of our new 60 GHz module. Over the last year we have had great success in several trials and pilot projects we have been involved in and now we are taking the next important step to secure our capabilities to provide high volumes and good quality products to the market.”
