Evolution of mmWave, Semiconductors, Antennae/interfaces, eWLB, to 60GHz BGA derives and more...

Presented by: Vubiq Networks, Mike Pettus, Founder & CTO

Thursday, January 23, 2020

12pm - 1pm


History review of raw die mmWave ICs to wafer scale BGA, and with some associated packaging and mmWave antennas/interfaces. Further review of flip chip, wire/ribbon bonding, to finally using eWLB packaged devices which enabled an all SMT approach at the system level. Evolution of early integrated antennas to 60 GHz BGA devices. Applications will be shown for point-to-point mmWave links, chipless RFID, and wireless data centers.
