Sivers IMA Holding AB says it has commenced a partnership with its Swedish EMS partner NOTE for volume delivery of 5G products.
Anders Storm © Sivers IMA“We are happy that we are now successfully through the design phase and hope to see the first series order in the second half of this year. To begin with orders will come within unlicensed 5G and we also expect orders for licenced 5G products when we have products ready for volume production”, says Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA, in a press release detailing the matter. Series production with regards to unlicensed 5G is expected to begin in the second half of 2019 and for licensed 5G products series production is expected from 2020. Sivers IMA says that when volumes ramp up, the partnership is expected to expand beyond Sweden. “We have partnered with NOTE before and chose NOTE also for our 5G products as they were able to meet our high quality demands in the design process. Furthermore, we will be able to grow production capacity together with NOTE outside of Sweden as volumes ramp up”, Storm continues. “In many ways this is a perfect example of a NOTE partnership where we get involved early in the customer’s design process and thereafter, as volumes ramp up, we can continue to support the customer, both from Sweden and from even more cost-efficient sites such as China. We follow customers through the complete product lifecycle, from design to after-sales”, says Johannes Lind-Widestam, CEO of NOTE.
