The Mobile World Congress (MWC) will take place in Barcelona, starting on February 27thand Sivers IMA will attend the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry to engage with customers to show and discuss around new products and the future of millimeter wave technology.

This year Sivers IMA will provide hands on proof points of our recently launched V-band transceiver chip and run a live demonstration to show the capabilities of the TRX 1608-LT6275. This product provides a high level of integration, resulting in considerable cost savings for customers. The chip has leading edge performance and the demonstration will show operation in the full extended V-band 57-71 GHz, where Sivers IMA probably is the first supplier in the world being able to demonstrate operation in 66-71 GHz, which has been opened by the FCC in the US last year.

“I am very proud that we will be able to show a live demonstration of our exceptional RF performance.  We have earlier stated that we would be able to support 64 QAM using our internal on chip SiGe VCO, and we will showcase modulations up to 256 QAM using the internal on chip SiGe VCO, this can be done due to state of the art low phase noise in the VCO. This is a unique feature that shows that we have a world class RFIC team. For our customers, we believe this can be a true differentiator and cost saver”, says Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA.

The TRX 1608-LT6275 transceiver is now ready to order for test and development purposes.

In the live demonstration, Sivers IMA is cooperating with the Swedish antenna company, Gapwaves, where they will provide their patented GAP-antennas in a configuration together with Sivers IMA’s RFIC.

“It is a great opportunity for us to be able to show our antennas in the Sivers IMA demo set-up at MWC “, says Lars-Inge Sjöqvist, CEO of Gapwaves.

“It is an excellent example of two high-tech Swedish millimeter wave companies working together and supporting each other with great technology in a setting like MWC”, says Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA

On top of demonstrating the unique current products, Sivers IMA will also be able meet and discuss with customers around our new product, the TRX BF/01 WiGig/802.11ad RFIC, that was launched last week. With both these RFICs available, we will be able to have strategic discussions with customers and potential partners around the best use of millimeter wave technology in products targeting both datacom and telecommunication infrastructure applications for the networks of today and tomorrow.

Sivers IMA will run these demonstrations and discussions with selected customers in Room 2A38MR, Hall 2 at Mobile World Congress.
