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
Engineering sampling begins in Q2:2014, and production in Q3:2014.
Tensorcom received its first funding round in October 2010 from California Capital Equity, LLC, a private equity arm of Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong. Subsequently, it has closed 2 additional rounds of funding, and has become the industry leader in single chip low power 60 GHz multi-gigabit connectivity solutions for mobile devices. Tensorcom's leading edge technology and design expertise enables a variety of applications for small form-factor, mobile devices including high speed data synchronization, real time video streaming and high-speed wireless docking. Tensorcom solutions fully support IEEE Std 802.11ad. Using the extensive industry experience of its design team, Tensorcom has taken the lead for low power, small form-factor, SiP solutions with multiple options for integrated antenna. “IEEE,” “802” and “IEEE 802.11ad” are trademarks of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
