Fabless RFIC company Sivers IMA announced four design wins for the company’s 57 to 71 GHz RFIC, the TRX-BF01. The company said the wins, with third-tier manufacturers, will not increase near-term revenues appreciably, estimating the time from design win to volume production in the range of 9 to 18 months.

Anders Storm, CEO, said, “One of the reasons for our success is that Sivers IMA seems to still be the only fully commercial 60 GHz phased array solution that also support the 66 to 71 GHz band, which recently also was addressed at the World Radio Conference as a license free allocated 5G NR frequency band.”

Sivers IMA has now secured 16 design wins, representing a 20 percent conversion from supplying an evaluation kit to winning a design.
