About Sivers Wireless

Sivers wireless solutions are forging paths mainly in advanced SATCOM but also in 5G/6G systems.

 

Sivers Wireless

Sivers Wireless develops mmWave products for satellite communications and advanced
5G systems for data and telecommunications networks. 

Millimeter wave is a key technology in 5G networks and the core of the solutions Wireless offers.


Market operators

Wireless’ market consists of system manufacturers, independent Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

Examples of system manufacturers are Ericsson, Nokia and Huawei, which in turn supply telecom operators such as AT&T, Softbank, Vodafone and Verizon. The system manufacturers and operators mentioned are examples of potential customers.
WISPs are small independent provider that complement the nationwide operators’ networks with wireless broadband access.
OEMs manufacture products that include Sivers Semiconductors’ chips. These products are then delivered to system manufacturers, operators or WISPs. Examples of OEM customers are Cambium, Adtran/CCS and 8devices.

Sivers Wireless mainly delivers to OEMs. Deliveries are made directly or through partners.


Wireless application areas

Wireless’ key application areas are driven by megatrends, such as high-speed broadband and satellite communications.

Operators in the telecommunications market are facing several major challenges: increased global demand for broadband for end customers, network optimization, a higher number of connected devices and sensors, greater network security and more high-quality connections. The trend has been further strengthened in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, as more users demand quality broadband for innovative new services. On the one hand, the services are essential for everyday life and, on the other hand, more and more companies view functioning broadband services as business-critical at a time when more people are working from home and environmental demands are reducing travel.

 

 

Wireless Products

From individual RFICs to ready-to-go modules, our components give your products a technical edge, while our evaluation kits take the guesswork out of development.

 

 

5G mmWave rfics & BFICs

5G mmwave RFIC

A broad range of Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFICs) and Beam Former Integrated Circuits (BFICs) for use in both licensed and unlicensed frequencies, from 24 GHz to 71 GHz. Sivers’ RFICs and BFICs support high data rates with superior performance in a small form factor and are highly robust, capable of operating in temperatures from -40c to +85c.

 

Radio Frequency (RF) Modules

RF Module

The simplest way to add wireless connectivity to your product – pre-tested and tuned.  All modules integrate high-performance beamforming transceiver IC, antenna arrays, low pass filters, and base-band interface.

 

evaluation kits (evk)

EVKs

Our evaluation kits allow you to quickly assess the RF aspect of your 5G mmWave system. Minimize development time and product cost while significantly reducing time to market. Our test platform offers an integrated solution with well-defined interfaces. 


 

Frequently asked questions

What is the TRXBF01?
It is a complete 16RX + 16TX beam forming RF transceiver supporting the frequency band 57-71GHz.
What is the architecture used in the TRXBF01?
It is a Zero-IF topology ie 16 RF in/out and analog base band I/Q in/out.
What is the main targeted application for TRXBF01?
The Transceiver is targeting data and telecommunication infrastructure solutions for unlicensed 5G mm-wave use cases.
Does the TRXBF01 have any internal calibration routines?
The TRXBF01 includes support for DC offset, LO leakage and IQ calibration. It includes an auxiliary ADC, supporting various external functions, e.g. power and temperature measurements as well as production test support.
1.26×1.26cm.
Regarding the beambook we will give you a short explanation for now, hopefully soon we can provide you with a user manual describing this in more details: The beam book file consists of a matrix of the form 16 columns and 64 rows. Each column contains information to the corresponding antenna how the phase shifts should stand (note that the beambook is reversed ie column 0 controls antenna patch 16) and each row contains one of 64 possible beams that the memories may contain. Each cell can thus have values from 0x0000 to 0x3F3F.
It uses embedded wafer level ball grid array (eWLB) package.
It is a complete 16RX + 16TX beam forming RF transceiver supporting the frequency band 24-29.5 GHz.
It is a Zero-IF topology ie 16 RF in/out and analog base band I/Q in/out.
The Transceiver is targeting data and telecommunication infrastructure solutions for unlicensed 5G mm-wave use cases.
The TRXBF02 includes support for DC offset, LO leakage and IQ calibration. It includes an auxiliary ADC, supporting various external functions, e.g. power and temperature measurements as well as production test support.
