New millimeter-wave technology could make future vehicles much safer



Hiroshima, Japan (SPX) Jun 08, 2017
Hiroshima University and Mie Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited (MIFS) has announced the development of a low-power millimeter-wave amplifier that feeds on 0.5 V power supply and covers the frequency range from 80 GHz to 106 GHz. It was fabricated using MIFS's Deeply Depleted Channel (DDC) technology. This is the first W-band (75-110 GHz) amplifier that can operate even with such a low power-supply voltage. Details of the technology will be presented at the IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium ... read more
