Fujitsu Develops World’s first Millimeter-Band Transmitter capable of transmitting data at speeds exceeding 10 Gbps

Fujitsu announced today, as a world’s first, the development of a transmitter operating in the 70-100 GHz band using impulse radio that is capable of transmitting data at speeds of more than 10 gigabits per second. This new development eliminates the need for oscillators and other hardware that had been required for use of earlier millimeter-band transmitters, thus enabling a smaller millimeter-band transmitter.

As a substitute for fiber-optic high-speed lines, the new transmitter could be used in wide range of applications geared to help bridge the digital divide, including for platform networks and short-range wireless LANs.
