Development of World’s Lowest Power Consumption Chipset for Multi-gigabit Millimeter wave Wireless Communication
Panasonic has announced the development of chipset for multi-gigabit millimeter wave wireless communication featuring industry’s lowest power consumption of less than 1 Watt. Panasonic has achieved this by using a new baseband processing architecture, enabling stable interactive communication between various kinds of devices supporting WiGig specification.
The new chip set can be embedded into mobile devices, such as smartphones which need less than 1 Watt of power. Furthermore, the new technology enables the transfer of 30 minute long compressed high definition video content to mobile devices within 10 seconds. In addition to this it will allow the streaming of latency-free high-definition video directly from a mobile device onto a big screen TV. The new chipset consist of 60 GHz transceiver LSI as well as a baseband processing LSI with MAC packet processing capability. The transceiver LSI size has been reduced by more than 50%, in comparison to the previous products developed by Panasonic, while supporting 9 GHz bandwidth which is allocated as unlicensed spectrum in Japan and Europe in the 60 GHz frequency band.
