Sivers IMA today announced that it has signed an agreement with Blu Wireless Technology (Blu), a company that designs and licenses baseband modem IP for mmWave applications – including the 802.11ad standard within the Wi-Fi Alliance (also known as WiGig®). Under the agreement, Blu will integrate and optimize its WiGig Hydra baseband modem IP with Sivers IMA’s WiGig RFIC. This will enable Sivers IMA to market a complete WiGig solution compliant with the 802.11ad standard. This includes a baseband modem and a transceiver with steerable antennas. In addition to conventional WiGig applications, Blu’s scalable HYDRA technology can be configured for telecommunication infrastructure solutions such as radio links, access points and Gigabit to the home (GBTH).
