The emergence of enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) connectivity based on mmWave 5G and the emerging prospect of broadband internet to using non-terrestrial mmwave backhaul using low earth orbit (LEO) satellite generated huge interest in the entire telecommunication ecosystem. While mmwave allows huge bandwidth of channels to enable enhanced broadband, it also poses a lot of technical challenges in terms of coverage, generating enough transmitted power efficiently particularly in the uplink, system cost & scaling and long term reliability of the hardware system particularly for infrastructure including Satellite born systems. Current talk will focus on how Silicon technologies based on differentiated fully depleted SOI (FDSOI) can address the above challenges by enabling a highly efficient and integrated radio without compromising on the mmWave performance and reliability. Talk will highlight the technology Figures of Merits (FOMs) for a mmwave phased array system and how a differentiated FDSOI technology platform compares with other silicon technologies in terms of devices and circuits.
