Single-Chip System-In-Package Achieves 60 GHz WiGig Certification

Tensorcom, a leading provider of ultra-low power 802.11ad WiGig semiconductor and system solutions, has achieved WiGig certification for its TC60G1316UE System-In-Package (SiP). The SiP, based on Tensorcom’s TC60G6504UE Nant1 802.11ad SoC, that brings robust, gigabit wireless connectivity to power-sensitive devices that demand high-performance.

With ABI Research studies forecasting more than one billion WiGig chipsets to be shipped by 2021, the WiGig certified Nant1 solutions by Tensorcom are ideal for products that demand high bandwidth wireless connectivity in a small package. WiGig can be used for a wide range of applications from wireless docking, multimedia streaming, high speed data transfer between devices, and networking applications.

Nant1 is a monolithic ultra-low power CMOS system-on-chip with integrated 60 GHz CMOS MAC/PHY and USB 3.0 controller/PHY and includes all functions required to implement a complete WiGig solution for embedded devices, accessories, and portable products that require gigabit-per-second wireless data rates at the lowest power in the smallest form factor.

Key features of the TC60G1316UE SiP include:

  • 802.11ad compliant MAC and PHY with support for multiple frequency channels
  • MCS_0 through MCS_7 support with max PHY rate of 1.9 Gbps
  • WiGig certified, with driver support for common operating systems
  • SIP dimensions 13 mm x 16 mm
  • Tx power of 450 mW max

Tensorcom has also announced the availability of two USB 3.0 adapter reference designs based on the Nant1 solution. The TC60G1422AE and TC60G1422CE reference 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.
