    Arralis releases the world’s first 94GHz transmit and receive core chips at IMS2016, San Francisco

Arralis releases the world’s first 94GHz transmit and receive core chips at IMS2016, San Francisco

The chips bring 94GHz into commercial radar and communications applications such as 5G and autonomous vehicles.

Arralis, the leading developer of 94GHz technology, has developed another world first with the launch of fully integrated transmit and receive 94GHz core chips at IMS2016. The devices make the highly desirable attenuation window of 94GHz available for commercial applications such as fully autonomous radar for drones and automotive as well as ‘wireless fiber’ communications speeds for 5G backhaul.

Speaking from San Francisco the company’s CTO, Mike Gleaves, welcomed the opportunity to showcase the unique products. “Our focus at Arralis is scale and integration which for our customers means easier system development and lower cost. These transmit and receive chips deliver both which is quite an achievement and further delivers on our promise to our customers that we would make our aerospace technology integrated and available for commercial applications”, said Gleaves.

The devices are currently in the hands of Arralis’ lead customers with full commercial roll out in the coming months.

This release adds to Arralis’ family of W-band Millimetre-wave Monolithic Integrated Circuits (MMIC) devices. Traditionally 94GHz has been used almost exclusively in the military radar market due high cost and difficulty of integration. 90-100GHz is very attractive due to its ultra-small system size, high resolution and unique propagation (long range) features. Arralis’ technical and scale achievements enable this frequency to be used in a wide range of commercial applications including 5G, mega constellations, drones, driverless vehicles and the Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, Arralis manufactures complementary electronic beam forming and scanning antennas, including the use of metamaterials, further empowering their customers with unique technology solutions.

The MMIC’s are PHEMT GaAs devices that measure just 5.2mm x 2.2mm. The chips’ function […]
