Critical features of the 60GHz chipset include a power output P out of 24dBm for QPSK modulation, the highest power WiGig compliant chipset ever successfully deployed, according to the manufacturer. The chipset supports the entire North American 60GHz unlicensed frequency band of 57GHz – 71GHz, where operation in the 64GHz – 71GHz range significantly increases propagation range due to lower level of oxygen absorption than lower frequencies in the band. It also offers support for half and quarter channel bandwidth; and 16 multiplexed Rx/Tx ports for inexpensive phased-array or dish antenna implementations, which enable multi-kilometer links. Using a dish configuration for applications such as 5G backhaul, the chipset will achieve 5km link distances at a rate of 2Gb/s. The X720 chipset is set to sample in September, with full production slated for Q4 2019.
