Sivers IMA finalizes 10 Gbps EU project
Sivers IMA AB has participated in the ICT project E3Network supported by the European Union through the FP7 program and contributed with mm ‐ wave knowhow and state of the art transceivers for mm ‐ wave backhaul. This project was initiated in December 2012 and finalized with good results in May 2016. A final review was held in Brussels mid ‐ September 2016.
Within the E3network project, a prototype of a very high ‐ speed (10 Gbps) E ‐ band point ‐ to ‐ point link was designed, manufactured, and evaluated together with several partners. This kind of mm ‐ wave data links covering 71 – 76 and 81 – 86 GHz are crucial for future telecommunication systems supporting high ‐ speed data to the user.
“This project shows Sivers IMA ' s capabilities to work with many of the best organizations in Europe in order to create a high ‐ speed point ‐ to ‐ point link prototype with very competitive performance”, says Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA.
It has been a very ambitious project which began with a comprehensive system analysis in order to derive the specification necessary for this mm ‐ wave link. The critical hardware was then identified and designed within the project. This included transmit/receive baseband functions implemented in FPGAs and RF front ‐ end circuits using an advanced BiCMOS process. These key hardware parts w ere combined with commercial blocks to form a complete mm ‐ wave point ‐ to ‐ point link. In parallel with the design work, the project has also been active in the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) defining the future usage of E ‐ band in Europe. As a result, the E3network Radio Profile has been accepted as the candidate for the new ETSI 10 Gbps / 2 GHz profile.
The E3network consortium consisted of: CEIT (Spain – coordinator), Fraunhofer (Germany), ALCATEL ‐ LUCENT (nowadays NOKIA – Italy), CEA (France), INCIDE (nowadays IXYS – Spain), Silicon Radar (Germany), ST Microelectronics (Italy), Sivers IMA (Sweden), and OTE (Greece).
