Sivers IMA Holding AB announced that Uppsala University has been selected to present a joint paper at the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), which will take place at ExCel London on 9 to 13 April. EuCAP is one of the flagship conferences on antennas and propagation, attracting researchers from across the world. With approximately 1200 attendees it is the largest conference of its kind outside the US.

The paper is based on joint research done between the Sivers IMA and Uppsala University, as part of a project partly funded by Vinnova called, 60 GHz RF beam-steering solution with phased array antenna for Small Cell backhaul and wireless access points. The paper is titled: Highly integrated low-loss multilayer PCB implementation of a high-gain broadband antenna array for 60 GHz wireless access communications.

“I am very pleased that our joint work with Uppsala University has been recognized in this great way. It is a big honor for Sivers IMA to be part of this and we are very happy that Uppsala University has been selected to present this paper at such a prestigious conference.” commented Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA Holding AB.

The joint project between Sivers IMA and Uppsala University has been going on since July 2016 and the work is carried out with support from the strategic innovation program Smarter Electronic Systems, a joint venture by Vinnova, Formas and the Swedish Energy Agency.
