SiBEAM Developers Co-Author New Millimeter Wave Technology Book


Sheung Li and Dr. James Gilb Provide Leading Industry Insights on Use of Millimeter Wave Technology for Wireless Networks

Who: Sheung Li , Director of Product Development and Marketing, and James Gilb, Ph.D., Director of Standards and Advanced Technology of SiBEAM, Inc, a fabless semiconductor company and pioneer in intelligent 60GHz millimeter wave (mmWave) technologies.

What: Mr. Li and Dr. Gilb have co-authored the chapter “Millimeter Waves for Wireless Networks” in the new book Millimeter Wave Technology in Wireless PAN, LAN, and MAN, designed to provide guidance needed to help students and IT professionals navigate through this new technology. Published by Auerbach Publications, the premier publisher for IT professionals, this text covers the fundamental concepts, recent advances and potential that these millimeter wave technologies will offer with respect to circuits design, system architecture, protocol development and standardization activities.

Chapter contents include:
- Presents the basic concepts of the mmWave technology in emerging WPAN, WLAN and WMAN markets
- Addresses fundamental problems and key challenges in designing mmWave circuits and systems
- Examines the specific new mechanism in resolving limitations of the mmWave technology
- Identifies future directions for mmWave

Why: SiBEAM is the first company to develop and manufacture chipsets based on the 60GHz frequency in CMOS, revolutionizing audio and video technology through its high-bandwidth capabilities. SiBEAM is also a founding member of the WirelessHD™ Consortium, the first industry group to develop a standardized solution for the wireless transmission of lossless, uncompressed high-definition audio and video content. Mr. Li and Dr. Gilb’s contribution to Millimeter Wave Technology in Wireless PAN, LAN, and MAN further establishes SiBEAM’s expertise in 60GHz and millimeter wave technology.
