MixComm, Sanmina Developing 5G mmWave Solutions

Reading time ( words)

MixComm, the mmWave Antennas to Algorithms pioneer, announced it has selected Advanced Microsystems Technologies, a division of Sanmina as a lead partner to productize its 5G wireless infrastructure solutions. The division will provide design, packaging, assembly, and testing services that integrate MixComm’s low power and beam forming chips into an innovative AiP package that simplifies and miniaturizes the product design. The solutions will be based upon MixComm’s SUMMIT2629 Beamformer Front End IC and the recently announced ECLIPSE3741 Antenna in Package (AiP).

The productization work will include design for manufacturability and thermal characterization. This work will enhance the performance of MixComm’s solutions and speed time to market for Sanmina’s and MixComm’s mutual customers.

“AiP solutions have become the most attractive front-end subsystems to ensure the performance benefits of mmWave frequencies that are essential for continued rollout and adoption of 5G networks,” said Eric Sislian, VP of the Advanced Microsystems Technologies division at Sanmina. “By combining our design and advanced manufacturing capabilities with MixComm’s leading RF technologies, we believe we can accelerate commercialization of AiP solutions that enable wireless communications providers to provide a high-quality user experience and expand their 5G networks.” 

“MixComm’s AiP is a transformative technology for millimeter-wave array solutions but requires thermal and mechanical solutions that are different from those employed for traditional chip-scale packages”, said Dr. Harish Krishnaswamy, MixComm Co-Founder and CTO. “With Sanmina, we are developing mechanical and thermal strategies for AiP that are mass manufacturable. Through this partnership, we will substantially lower the barrier to entry into the millimeter-wave market for our customers.”

Going Global: Bridging Today's Labor Gap

03/18/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
No doubt you will relate to Foad Ghalili when he expresses his concerns about rising input costs to doing business, from getting the right components, to delivery times, and price increases. But what’s unique for the president of Epoch International is the way his company has leveraged its U.S. and China operations to make the most of the other thing on everyone’s mind—the labor shortage. If you’re not already implementing his ideas, you will walk away from this interview with some sure-fire tips.

The Under-Reported Story of the Semiconductor Shortage: Counterfeits

02/10/2022 | Bill Cardoso, Creative Electron
At this stage, we are all aware of the semiconductor shortage. While chips are still in short supply, there’s been no shortage of news stories about the chip shortage. If media coverage of the problem actually generated chips, the shortages might well be over. We’ve all seen stories about exploding demand for consumer electronics, factories shuttered during COVID-19 lockdowns, supply chain bottlenecks, a dearth of raw materials, and even drought, all in an effort to explain why we can’t get enough of these critical components.
