A*STAR IME Develops Silicon-based 135 GHz Circuit Technology For Future Generation Wireless Communications

Researchers from A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics (IME) are exploiting high radio frequency to develop future high speed wireless communication products. Using silicon-based materials, the team have successfully realised high speed chips that can wirelessly communicate data at a rate of 10 Gbps on 135 GHz band - more than 100 times faster than present day Wi-Fi[1].
