Tensorcom, Inc. Announces Lowest Power 802.11ad Complete Solution

Tensorcom has announced availability of the lowest power, 802.11ad/WiGig compliant System in a Package (SiP), which includes an Green System on a Chip (GSoC(TM)) that implements the MAC and PHY as well as multiple 60 GHz antennas. The TC2522-Y is the first GSoC(TM) to meet the power and size requirements of mobile phones and tablets while providing > 2.5 Gb/s throughput. The TC2522-Y showcases company's 60 GHz radio design as well a novel MODEM and MAC implementation that delivers on the 802.11ad promise of low-power Gb/s data connectivity for mobile platforms. The company's TC2522-Y is designed for IEEE Std 802.11ad-2012(TM) and supports up to 2.5 Gb/s operation over all four 60 GHz channels. It has been designed to be the lowest cost, lowest power solution for integrating multi-gigabit wireless links in space and power constrained devices such as mobile phones and tablets. Key Features: Fabricated in TSMC 40 nm standard CMOS process; Peak power < 150 mW using 802.11ad compliant low power single carrier mode; 2.5 Gb/s data rate supports QHD/4K video streaming; Complete solution including antennas fully integrated in a single package; Low cost 17 mm x 11 mm x 0.5 mm module; Available in a novel end-fire antenna pattern suitable for placement in thin devices or with patch antenna for vertical mounting.

Tensorcom Announces Ultra Low Power, High Speed Multi-Gigabit Wireless Chip for Mobile Devices

Tensorcom announced test results of its innovative Nantoid chip with wireless transmission of data at an unparalleled speed of 2.5 gigabits per second at a transmit power of less than 100 milliwatts. This establishes the Nantoid chip as the lowest power WiGig/IEEE 802.11ad radio to meet the power requirements for mobile phones and tablets. This transformational advancement will enhance access and ease of use for millions of consumers. With this innovative and proven advancement, Tensorcom has taken the lead in developing the first ultra-low power WiGig compliant SoC integrating radio, modem and MAC. Transmission and power tests showed a fully functional WIGIG/802.11ad compliant SoC with integrated antennas operating at 2.5 Gbps coded rate in a non line of sight environment, with radio power usage less than 100 milliwatts. the Tensorcom Nantoid radio is fabricated in TSMC 40 nm standard CMOS process with the following groundbreaking features: Peak RX power < 80 mW; Peak TX power < 100 mW with 17 dBm EIRP; Antennas fully integrated in the package; Low cost 9 mm x 7.5 mm package, less than 1.2 mm high; A novel end-fire antenna pattern suitable for placement in thin devices; Patch antenna for vertical mounting. The TC-1T-12001-EV development kit is based on the latest WiGig specification and IEEE 802.11ad standard and supports up to 3.52 Gb/s operation over all four 60 GHz channels. The Tensorcom radio solution has been designed to be the lowest cost, lowest power solution for integrating multi-gigabit wireless links in space and power constrained devices such as mobile phones and tablets. Tensorcom, which received its first funding round in October, 2010, has quickly become the industry leader in low power, 60 GHz single chip solutions for multi-gigabit connectivity for mobile devices. Tensorcom's edge technology and design expertise enables a variety of applications for small form-factor, battery powered devices including high speed data synchronization, real time video streaming and high-speed wireless docking.
