SiBEAM's single-chip CMOS transmitter captures design win in first 60GHz smartphone

SiBEAM Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, USA (a Lattice Semiconductor company that develops CMOS silicon-based millimeter-wave technologies for wireless communications) has announced a key design win for its UltraGig SiI6400 transmitter with Letv's Le Max, which is said to be the first smartphone offering 60GHz millimeter-wave wireless video technology in volume production. Announced in mid-April and available for purchase from June, Le Max is claimed to establish a new benchmark for low-power millimeter-wave design in mobile device form factors.

SiBEAM claims to be the first firm to build 60GHz chipsets using standard CMOS technology. The UltraGig SiI6400 transmitter is a single-chip solution that integrates network processor, RF transceiver and in-package antennas, offering Full HD quality with near-zero latency for immersive entertainment and gaming. The inclusion of SiBEAM's wireless technology in the device expands Letv's film, TV and gaming services to mobile consumers.

"SiBEAM's 60GHz millimeter-wave wireless expertise is unparalleled and their video technology gives consumers a seamless, interactive experience from the phone to the TV," comments Letv's product director Yukuan Ding. "As wireless connectivity becomes increasingly important to consumers, Letv will continue to offer products with innovative technologies that enhance the consumer experience."

Leshi Internet Information and Technology Co is China's leading Internet content and entertainment provider, offering Internet, movie and TV content as well as Internet TVs and set-top boxes. The firm launched its first smartphone (a bezel-less device) earlier this year.

"Letv's Le Max design win is not only a key milestone for the wireless industry, but also showcases SiBEAM's leadership in millimeter-wave advancement and fulfilling the promise of gigabit wireless experience for consumers worldwide," says SiBEAM's senior director of marketing David Kuo.

SiBEAM is demonstrating its millimeter-wave portfolio (including its UltraGig wireless video and data solutions as well as Snap wireless connector replacement technology) in a demo suite at the Grand Hyatt Taipei, Taiwan during the Computex Taipei trade show (2-5 June).
