Tensorcom, Inc. Announces Lowest Power 802.11ad Complete Solution

Blazing fast 2.5 Gb/s data rate, using less than 150 mW peak power in a small form factor is the best solution for mobile devices

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tensorcom has announced availability of the lowest power, 802.11ad/WiGig compliant System in a Package (SiP), which includes an industry leading "Green" System on a Chip (GSoC) that implements the MAC and PHY as well as multiple 60 GHz antennas.  The TC2522-Y is the first GSoC to meet the power and size requirements of mobile phones and tablets while providing > 2.5 Gb/s throughput.  The TC2522-Y showcases Tensorcom's industry leading 60 GHz radio design as well a novel MODEM and MAC implementation that delivers on the 802.11ad promise of low-power Gb/s data connectivity for mobile platforms. The Tensorcom's TC2522-Y is designed for IEEE Std 802.11ad-2012 and supports up to 2.5 Gb/s operation over all four 60 GHz channels.  It has been designed to be the lowest cost, lowest power solution for integrating multi-gigabit wireless links in space and power constrained devices such as mobile phones and tablets. 

Tensorcom will be demonstrating its GSoC solution in Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 24 - 27.

"This solution changes the entire landscape of mobile connectivity and provides new opportunities for a consolidation of computing platforms," said Hock Law, CEO of Tensorcom.  "We are able to provide a 10x increase in data rate with a fraction of the power.  In addition, the implementation of the ultra-low power mode utilizes 150 mW peak power while still supporting 2.5 Gb/s."

"Tensorcom's dream of providing an ultra-low power 60 GHz solution in the mobile space has now become reality and we look forward to OEM's adopting Tensorcom's solution in a variety of mobile applications," said Dr. Ismail Lakkis, Co-founder of Tensorcom.

"Tensorcom is the leader in ultra high-speed, very low-power, millimeter-wave solutions.  The design team has created a standards compliant solution that will enable new applications for mobile devices," said Dr. Behzad Razavi, Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA, and technical advisor to Tensorcom.

"I'm thrilled that Tensorcom is a member of the NantWorks family of investee companies. In particular, I am very proud of the achievements of the Tensorcom team as it proceeds with sampling and production of the world's first commercially available ultra low power 802.11ad system on a chip in 2014," said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, Lead Investor and member of the Board of Directors.   

Key Features:

  • Fabricated in TSMC 40 nm standard CMOS process
  • Peak power < 150 mW using 802.11ad compliant low power single carrier mode
  • 2.5 Gb/s data rate supports QHD/4K video streaming
  • Complete solution including antennas fully integrated in a single package
  • Low cost 17 mm x 11 mm x 0.5 mm module
  • Available in a novel end-fire antenna pattern suitable for placement in thin devices or with patch antenna for vertical mounting
