Collaboration to Improve 5G mmWave Cellular Coverage

Feb. 28, 2022
The mmWave non-signaling test solution is presented as the first of its kind to support all 5G FR2 frequencies within the 23-45GHz frequency range.

LitePoint announced a technology development partnership with Sivers for its 5G mmWave Antenna-in-Package (AiP) products. The fully integrated IQgig-5G is a versatile multiband mmWave non-signaling test solution presented as the first of its kind to support all 5G FR2 frequencies within the 23-45GHz frequency range. All signal generation, analysis, processing, and RF front-end switching are self-contained inside a single chassis. The test system enables small cell waveform generation and analysis for 5G radio technologies and allows for real-time RF parametric analysis for small cell products.

Sivers’s ECLIPSE3741 is a highly integrated 5G beamformer phased array Antenna in Package (AiP) module. It combines multiple Sivers RFSOI beamforming front end integrated circuits with a 16 element (4x4) antenna array. Covering FR2 band, n260 from 37.0 to 41.0 GHz, it offers exceptionally high linear output power, efficiency, and extreme integration. This AiP module is designed to enable λ/2 wavelength antenna lattice spacing when tiled together to support higher power applications. It has also been extensively optimized for heat management.
