2018 Peraso XTechnologies' 710 Chipset 60GHz Outdoor Wireless Broadband Solution Complete Teardown Report


Dublin, Aug. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Peraso X710 Chipset 60GHz Outdoor Wireless Broadband Solution Complete Teardown Report" report has been added to's offering.

Even though millimeter-wave (mmWave) technology has become better defined this year, several questions remain unanswered. How will the technology be implemented? Which manufacturing technology will be used? Will it be used in cellphone handsets? Which companies will prevail in the market?

Today, the only glimpse of what could be done in the near future is the WiGig application, which spans handsets, routers and backhaul products. Qualcomm is already in prime position in radio-frequency (RF) CMOS technology in handset applications. But for backhaul, where the power and performance requirements are higher, there's room for other technologies and competitors. Peraso Technologies is one that is already well positioned, with several design wins for its X710 chipset.

Peraso Technologies' three product series target consumer, industrial and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) applications. The X series chipset for outdoor wireless broadband solutions is composed of two separate components, a baseband integrated circuit (IC) and an RFIC. Integrated into the IgniteNet ML-690-LW device, the solution features also a ceramic substrate-based phase array antenna. Soldered on the same board as 32 antennae, the all-60GHz solution takes up only 5% of the device volume.

This report includes a full investigation of the system, featuring a detailed study of the baseband processor, the RFIC and the antenna board including die analyses, processes and board cross-sections. We focus on the RFIC block diagram and the antenna board routing view and dimensions. The report contains a complete cost analysis and a selling price estimation of the chipset. Finally, it features an exhaustive comparison with the Qualcomm chipset for router and handset applications.
