TMY Technology Inc. (TMYTEK), a leading mmWave solution provider, has announced a collaboration with DuPont, Chroma ATE Inc., and ADIVIC to supply millimeter-wave solutions for 5G/ B5G and satellite communication applications. Together, they showcased the SATCOM electronic steering antenna (ESA) and the user terminal test solution at the Taiwan Space Exhibition (Booth 743) during the SATELLITE 2022 in Washington, DC this week.
TMYTEK announced the strategic partnership with DuPont Microcircuit and Components Materials (DuPont MCM), the low temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) material systems provider, Chroma, a world-leading supplier of automated test systems and measurement instruments, and ADIVIC, a Chroma subsidiary, and a major wireless communication test and measurement solutions provider in Taiwan.
TMYTEK is targeting the SATCOM market with a one-stop solution that is capable of design, fabrication, and testing. In collaboration with DuPont MCM to demonstrate the world's biggest 256-element commercial and defense-ready LTCC Ka-band antenna array that is 12 x 12 cm in size. In another demonstration, TMYTEK integrated a Chroma & ADIVIC semiconductor final test turnkey solution with handler, OTA test chamber, tri-temp control unit, digital & RF tester with an efficient codebook and rebuilt algorithm. The solution also includes TMYTEK's up/ down converter with a broadband frequency range of 10 to 50 GHz, which supports all SATCOM applications.
Ethan Lin, TMYTEK Co-Founder, and Vice President spoke at the SATELLITE 2022 conference about "Redefining Smallsat Ground Systems & Infrastructure" and the challenges of designing cutting-edge ground systems, antennas, and terminals for today's robust small satellite networks alongside other extraordinary people.
"During the SATCOM boom, the electronically guided flat panel antenna is projected to play a critical role. We are thrilled to be a part of this great communication technology achievement with our superior engineering capability in the Ku/Ka-band electronic steering arrays," said Ethan Lin, VP and co-founder of TMYTEK.
"We are very pleased to work with TMYTEK to develop the LTCC Ku/Ka-band antenna array. The combined features of strong mechanical strength, high thermal conductivity, low loss characteristics and good thermal stability make the DuPont MCM GreenTape material system an ideal choice. It enables design flexibility for TMYTEK to deliver excellent antenna performance." said Yu-Ling Hsiao, Global Technology Leader, DuPont MCM.
TMYTEK empowers industrial inventions to reach the market faster by transforming the mmWave RF front-end with innovative devices, inventing ready-to-use beamformer, implementing phased arrays with modern AiP technology (Ku/ Ka-band), and redefining the OTA testing methodology.
