MixComm and Sanmina to develop 5G mmWave solutions
MixComm has selected Advanced Microsystems Technologies, a Sanmina division as its lead partner to productise its 5G wireless infrastructure solutions.
The division will provide design, packaging, assembly, and testing services that integrate MixComm’s low power and beam forming chips into an innovative AiP package that simplifies and miniaturises the product design. The solutions will be based upon MixComm’s SUMMIT2629 Beamformer Front End IC and the ECLIPSE3741 Antenna in Package (AiP).
“AiP solutions have become the most attractive front-end subsystems to ensure the performance benefits of mmWave frequencies that are essential for continued rollout and adoption of 5G networks,” says Eric Sislian, VP of the Advanced Microsystems Technologies division at Sanmina in a press release. “By combining our design and advanced manufacturing capabilities with MixComm’s leading RF technologies, we believe we can accelerate commercialization of AiP solutions that enable wireless communications providers to provide a high-quality user experience and expand their 5G networks.”
The work will also include design for manufacturability and thermal characterisation. Advanced Microsystems Technologies has product development and high-volume manufacturing capabilities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, China and Thailand.
“With Sanmina, we are developing mechanical and thermal strategies for AiP that are mass manufacturable. Through this partnership, we will substantially lower the barrier to entry into the millimeter-wave market for our customers,” said Dr. Harish Krishnaswamy, MixComm Co-Founder and CTO.
