Sivers Semiconductors Launches Low-Cost 28 GHz 5G mmWave RF Module at MWC 2024

Sivers Semiconductors has announced the commercial launch of its state-of-the-art new low-cost Radio Frequency (RF) Module (BFM02803), covering the 5G FR2 mmWave bands N257, N258, and N261 (from 24.25 GHz to 29.5 GHz). Live demonstration of this state-of-the-art 28 GHz 5G mmWave RF module are being given at MWC 2024 this week.

The Module BFM02803 – presented at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 – is optimized for high-performance, high-power Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) applications and manages to differentiate and meet the requirements of large-scale manufacturing of FWA products. It is designed to interface with leading baseband modems.

The BFM02803 supports 2×2 MIMO with dual-layer polarization in both downlink and uplink for channels up to 1.2 GHz. The new module includes 32 dual-polarized antenna elements with 2D beam steering capabilities, in azimuth and elevation.

“Sivers Semiconductors pushes ahead with even more 5G innovations. By combining the market-leading performance of the TRB02801 RFIC with innovative antenna design, you get the flexibility and performance required for large deployments of 28 GHz FWA networks.”, said Anders Storm, Group CEO of Sivers Semiconductors.

Autonomous calibration routines and simple baseband interfaces make the module easy to install and manage. With the use of an air-filled cavity in the PCB, the module is optimized for large-scale, low-loss, and low-cost assembly. Additionally, transmitted power greater than +50 dBm per polarization enables FWA product deployments in the most diverse applications with the lowest total cost of ownership.

Anders Storm continues: “This module will improve your business case and make your 28 GHz fixed wireless access product truly competitive.”

The module BMF02803 will be showcased in a live demonstration of a fully functioning and deployment-ready base station reference design based on NXP’s Layerscape® Access LA12xx baseband processor, Sivers Semiconductors’ 5G mmWave transceiver module: TRB02801, and PureSoftware’s physical layer stack.
