Fujikura Begins Shipping Evaluation Sample of 60 GHz mmWave Wireless Communications Module

Fujikura Ltd. (TOKYO: 5803) has started providing samples of 60 GHz Millimeter Wave Wireless Communications Module employing “High-gain phased array antenna” which realizes high speed wireless communication in the 60 GHz frequency band, the company said.

Their compact design combines a baseband wireless modem function and an antenna with an included RF front end function.

Various applications, including video transmission and things like games utilizing VR/AR, are spreading broadly through society. High speed, high capacity communications are required to keep up, but the Sub 6 GHz frequency bands used by 4G are too narrow to accommodate such demands.
