Tensorcom Announces World's Lowest Power 802.11ad WiGig Chip (NantFi) at Barcelona Mobile World Congress

Tensorcom, a member of the Nantworks family of companies, today announced the availability of the world's lowest power, 802.11ad/WiGig compliant System in a Package (SiP), which includes an industry leading “Green” System on a Chip (GSoC™) that implements the MAC and PHY as well as multiple 60 GHz antennas. The Tensorcom chip (coined "NantFi 1.0") is the first GSoC™ to meet the power and size requirements of mobile phones and tablets while providing > 2.5 Gb/s throughput. NantFi 1.0 showcases Tensorcom's industry leading 60 GHz radio design as well as a novel MODEM and MAC implementation that delivers on the 802.11ad promise of low-power Gb/s data connectivity for mobile platforms. Tensorcom's NantFi is designed for IEEE Std 802.11ad-2012TM and supports up to 2.5 Gb/s operation over all four 60 GHz channels. NantFi has been designed to be the lowest cost, lowest power solution for integrating multi-gigabit wireless links in space and power constrained devices such as mobile phones and tablets. Tensorcom will be demonstrating the NantFi GSoC™ solution at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 24 - 27.

“This GSoC solution changes the entire landscape of mobile connectivity and provides new opportunities for consolidation of computing platforms,” said Hock Law, CEO of Tensorcom. “We are able to provide a 10x increase in data rate with a fraction of the power. Our implementation of this ultra-low power mode utilizes 150 mW peak power while supporting a huge data transmission rate of 2.5 Gb/second...a breakthrough in design.”

“Tensorcom's dream of providing an ultra-low power 60 GHz solution in the mobile space has now become reality and we look forward to mobile device manufacturers adopting Tensorcom’s solution in a variety of mobile applications,” said Dr. Ismail Lakkis, Co-founder of Tensorcom.

“I’m proud that Tensorcom is a member of the NantWorks family of companies and a key element of our billion dollar investment in an ecosystem of companies committed to transform how we work, live and play. I am particularly proud of the pioneering and breakthrough achievements of our Tensorcom team in being the first in the world to build a chip with such blazing speeds yet with such low power. This breakthrough chip of ultra-low power and high bandwidth will now bring the Internet of things to a whole new dimension, when integrated into all manner of machine-to-machine combinations of mobile computing devices. Tensorcom will proceed with sampling and production of the world's first commercially available ultra low power 802.11ad system on a chip in 2014 and we are in multiple discussions with strategic partners to now build an ecosystem of devices,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, Lead Investor and Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Key Features of NantFi Chip:

  • Fabricated in TSMC 40 nm standard CMOS process
  • Peak power < 150 mW using 802.11ad compliant low power single carrier mode
  • 2.5 Gb/s data rate supports QHD/4K video streaming
  • Complete solution including antennas fully integrated in a single package
  • Low cost 17 mm x 11 mm x 0.5 mm module
  • Available in a novel end-fire antenna pattern suitable for placement in thin devices or with patch antenna for vertical mounting

Availability

Engineering sampling begins in Q2:2014, and production in Q3:2014.
