TMR&D is developing a millimeter-wave point-to-point (PTP) Wireless Gigabit Ethernet Communication System. A 60 GHz Low Temperature Co-Fired Ceramics (LTCC) System-On-Package (SoP), Transceiver capable of gigabit data rate has been built and demonstrated with a size of 17.76 x 17 89 mm(2). A direct Amplitude-Shfit Keying (ASK) modulation and demodulation scheme is adopted for the 60GHz-band transceiver. A BER of 1 X 10(-12) for data rate of 1.25 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) on 2.2 GHz bandwidth at 1.4 km was demonstrated This paper reports a new PTP link that has been installed at TMR&D site to demonstrate wireless gigabit operation and performance of its key components. The link will operate at the 57.65-63 35 GHz band incorporating TMR&D's designed millimeter-wave LTCC SoP RF Transceiver module. This LTCC SoP RF Transceiver is suitable for short-range wireless networking, systems, security camera TV, video conferencing, streaming video like HDTV (high definition television) and wireless downloading systems for small power application.
