Panasonic announces worlds lowest power consumption chipset for Multi-gigabit Millimeter Wave Wireless Communication
Panasonic today announced that it has developed a chipset for multi-gigabit millimeter wave wireless communication that offers the industry’s lowest power consumption of less than 1 Watt by employing a new baseband processing architecture. The new Panasonic chipset will enable stable interactive communication between various kinds of devices supporting the specification developed by the WiGig Alliance. This newly developed chipset consists of a 60 GHz transceiver LSI, and a baseband processing LSI with Media Access Control (MAC) packet processing capability. Even when operating at a high data rate of 2.5 Gigabits per second, this chipset is capable of achieving less than 1-Watt of power consumption.
This chipset can be embedded into mobile devices, such as smartphones, which require less than 1-Watt power consumption. This technology enables the transfer a 30 minute-long compressed high-definition video content to mobile devices within 10 seconds. It also allows the streaming of latency-free high-definition video (for example, instant high-definition display updates in response to user controls on mobile devices) directly from a mobile device onto a big screen TV with real-time performance that surpasses any of the existing technologies today.
