Development of a Millimeter-wave (60 GHz) RF Antenna Module
Murata Manufacturing has commercialized and begun mass-production of a millimeter-wave (60 GHz) RF antenna module that makes possible the high-speed broadband communications that are required for creating the next generation of wireless networks.
The need is growing for faster Internet communication in line with the increase in bandwidth required by Internet contents such as ultra-high definition (HD, 4K) video, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR). In addition, constructing wired networks that cover wide areas requires enormous amounts of cables and labor, and the costs of constructing and maintaining this infrastructure are also considerable. The new millimeter-wave RF antenna module will contribute to the creation of the next generation of wireless networks that utilize the 60 GHz frequency by supporting the IEEE802.11ad millimeter-wave wireless LAN standard.
Furthermore, Murata has designed this new module to perform well in outdoor applications such as in the base stations of telecommunications carriers. Thanks to the use of an independently developed LTCC, it realizes stable communications quality while featuring both high heat resistance and high moisture resistance.
The new module is anticipated to be utilized in a wide range of applications such as for communication between mobile phone base stations including next-generation 5G wireless communication, for communication between Wi-Fi hotspots, and for use in wireless communication networks in smart cities.
The features of the new millimeter-wave RF antenna module are as follows.
