SINGAPORE: Researchers from A*STAR’s Institute of Microelectronics (IME) have developed the first compact high performance silicon—based cavity—backed slot (CBS) antenna that operates at 135 GHz.
About the size of a sesame seed, it is the smallest silicon—based CBS antenna reported to date for ready integration with active circuits.
IME’s innovation will help realise a wireless communication system with very small form factor. It is almost two—thirds cheaper than a conventional CBS antenna.
The antenna can support wireless speed of 20 Gbps — more than 200 times faster than present day Wi—Fi.
This means there will be ultra fast point—to—point access to rich media content which is useful in online learning and entertainment.
