The chip is qualified according to JESD47JE (“Stress-Test-Driven Qualification of Integrated Circuits”), which is a global industry standard to ensure component reliability. Qualification tests are conducted and consist of various stress-related tests, including simulated use over a long period of time (more than 10 years in normal use), resistance to cold, heat, voltage, humidity and electrostatic discharge, etc.
“For all electronic components, it’s a very important milestone to have completed this qualification. Now we can safely sell our products in volume. We are now entering a very exciting phase, where the TRX BF01 is already sold to for example CCS, which is now building unlicensed 5G systems around England in multiple locations” says Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA Holding.
TRX BF01 is a world-leading wireless multi-gigabyte chip that can be used for next generation unlicensed 5G for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) to the home or mesh networks for backhaul. A conference contribution from Sivers IMA to IEEE RFIC Symposium 2018 based on TRX BF01 was selected “Best Industrial Paper” at the IEEE RFIC Symposium in Philadelphia in USA, as recently as June 2018. The IEEE RFIC Symposium is the world’s leading conference focused on RFIC technology and Sivers IMA won the award in competition with leading semiconductor companies such as Intel, Qualcom, Samsung, Infineon and others. One of the reasons for the award is that the TRX BF01 is the only chip in the world that can use the entire unlicensed 5G band all the way from 57 GHz to 71 GHz, this band is now available for example throughout the United States and England to be used as free and unlicensed 5G spectrum.
