RF DEVICES & TECHNOLOGIES

At just 3.3mm high, the antennas are ultra-compact, so they can be used in slim-line devices that will be unobtrusive in use. The antennas perform efficiently with a small ground plane, and can even be used on PCBs as small as 65mm. Where the PCB is smaller than 75mm, Antenova provides an additional active tuning circuit to overcome bandwidth reductions.The antennas are designed to work singly or in pairs for MIMO and diversity systems. They have beam steering which gives good isolation and cross correlation and will provide faster downloads in diversity applications.

While the mobile industry is done with its annual Mobile World lovefest — held last month in Barcelona — tech suppliers, system OEMs and mobile operators now face a host of 5G obstacles not yet overcome. In fact, they’re just getting started. The technical issues of 5G are manifold. Among them, smart antennas and RF front-ends for 5G mmWave — typically expected to operate at frequencies such as 28 GHz, 39 GHz or 60 GHz — could seriously affect the performance of yet-to-emerge 5G mmWave mobile phones.

According to Mark Granger, vice president of GlobalFoundries’ product line management, the IATF 16949 standard is a binding prerequisite for being allowed to manufacture semiconductor products for the automotive industry as a supplier. IATF 16949 is based on the existing ISO 16949 standard for quality assurance and supply chain protection but modified by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF, comprising of BMW, Chrysler, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, GM, Renault and VW)) according to the needs of the automotive industry. In order to achieve such certification, semiconductor manufacturers must prove that they fully meet the strict safety and quality standards. Above all, this includes guaranteeing a failure rate of 1ppm, i.e. a maximum deviation per million parts produced. In addition to the certification requirements for the production site and manufacturing processes, GloFo’s 22FDX technology has also been qualified to meet these technological requirements.
