Record-setting 8 Gbps data rate achieved using bidirectional 64-element link with phased-array beam-pointing capabilities—supports applications in 5G, aerospace and defense
- The demonstration made use of University of California (UC) San Diego transmit/receive phased-array chips with a noise figure less than 4.6 dB
- Uses TowerJazz high-performance SiGe BiCMOS SBC18H3 process
- Benefits from Keysight software and hardware for signal generation and analysis

Keysight Technologies with the University of California San Diego have announced the longest bidirectional phased-array link in the 60 GHz band. At a link distance of 300 m, the 32-element array achieved a data rate of greater than 2 Gbps over all scan angles up to ±45 degrees.
Data rates were 4 Gbps at 100 m and 500 Mbps at 800 m over most scan angles. Initial tests by a leading wireless provider suggest the system can deliver content to eight homes at a time at up to 300 m.
