Industry leaders worldwide are driving WiGig/802.11ad technology standards for utilizing the 60 GHz unlicensed frequency band. Its 7 GHz absolute bandwidth allows instant massive data transmission such as uncompressed high-quality multimedia streaming, as well as sharing and backing up contents. This is the next frontier in consumer electronic connectivity in which one can replace the nest of wires in the living room with high-speed wireless technology. WWW.in-stat.com forecasted that WiGig/802.11ad-enabled PC devices shipments will approach 15 million units in 2015 and will continue to grow rapidly. This multi-gigabit wireless system requires wideband off-chip antenna and high performance CMOS-based RF transceiver and their integration. Innovations are required to drive down the cost and enhance system performance. Integration between high-speed baseband with the RF transceiver is another essential piece to complete the jigsaw puzzle for a competitive product. In this project, we draw upon the expertise and facilities of the SKLMW in antenna and RFIC design, together with the sales and marketing experience of Tongyu (Hong Kong) Company Limited and Zhuhai Hansen Technology Co., Ltd. to pursue the endeavor of establishing enabling technology in short range communication for high speed, high date rate communications.
