CAES Selected for 5G Millimeter Wave Converter

Reading time ( words)

CAES, a pioneer in advanced electronics and manufacturer of trusted solutions for aerospace and defense, announced that a leading 5G manufacturer has selected CAES to develop and provide a multi-channel wideband millimeter wave (mmW) up- and down-converter for use in 5G equipment. This supports the 28 GHz and 39 GHz bands, which enables high speed connections due to larger bandwidth. This industry-leading CAES customer provides advanced, reliable, high performance, wideband 5G equipment solutions of the highest quality.

“We are proud to be an integral part of our customer’s 5G solution in this fast growing market.  This customer is widely recognized as the leading provider of 5G equipment,” said Mike Kahn, CEO of CAES. “We are well positioned to serve the 5G market. Our technical capabilities developed over decades serving the electronic warfare market, and the wideband millimeter wave expertise, combined with our ability to scale up production volumes are exactly what customers are looking for in a partner,” he continued.

Wideband technology enables the processing of several communications bands at the same time, providing for faster 5G solutions, edge computing, and enabling data hungry applications such as smart city infrastructure and autonomous driving. CAES mmW frequency converters provide low phase noise, high spurious suppression and excellent gain flatness resulting in superior signal fidelity. Moreover, CAES frequency converters feature unique packaging techniques allowing for very high density circuit integration, high channel-to-channel isolation, excellent thermal management, and small form-factor solutions. In addition, CAES’ design-for-manufacturing expertise enables automation of certain assembly and test functions to reduce cycle time and cost.

For decades, CAES’ broad portfolio of commercial and military grade RF, microwave and millimeter wave products have been at the forefront of industrial, commercial, military and aerospace design, providing innovative solutions. CAES’ broad line of mmW products are integrated into leading EW, 5G, radar, missile, and SATCOM systems. CAES offers a full range of high performance, wideband, multi-channel Integrated Microwave Assemblies (IMA), antennas and arrays, waveguides, rotary joints, and cables.

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense

11/24/2020 | Jeff Demmin, Keysight Technologies
Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). As the benefits of Moore’s Law became more difficult and more expensive to achieve, the organization decided to publish a final version in 2016. The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), with the realization that heterogeneous integration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an important enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry.
