Peraso Announces PER-PAx Series of 60GHz Phased Array Antenna Solutions
Peraso Technologies Inc. has released its new PER-PAx patented series of phased array antenna solutions, which complement the company's 802.11ad chipsets. The antennas provide a means to increase system performance and cover the extremely wide bandwidth allowed in the unlicensed 60GHz band.
Critical features of the antennas include:
Multi-layer construction optimized for low-cost with fiber-resin substrates and standard process technology; eliminates exotic soft-board or ceramic substrates
PER-PAG models utilize air-gap dielectric for increased antenna gain and system performance
PER-PAD models are designed to feed parabolic reflectors and utilize phased array beam steering to facilitate and optimize antenna aiming
Consistent gain response over the 57-71 GHz unlicensed frequency band
Highly repeatable in mass production
Stable performance over wide operating temperature range
"The PER-PAx antennas provide a solution that the mmWave industry needs in order to reduce system cost without sacrificing performance," explains Bill McLean, President and CEO of Peraso. "Coupled with our new X720 chipset, our customers are able to build multi-gigabit mmWave radio links with ranges in excess of 5kms."
The PER7213-PAG is the first version of the PER-PAG series containing 64 elements configured in a 2-D scanning array with 22dBi gain across the full frequency range. In conjunction with the X720 60 GHz chipset from Peraso, a complete system is able to achieve a 1.5 km link without the use of a dish antenna.
The PER7211-PAD is the first PER-PAD model, designed to feed a 390mm dish with 44 dBi gain. In conjunction with the X720 60 GHz chipset from Peraso, a complete system is able to achieve a 5 km link with a data rate of 1Gb/s.
