Sivers signs agreement with Indian 5G firm


$320k agreement to develop novel mmWave prototype opens door to Indian 5G market

Sivers Semiconductors' business unit Sivers Wireless, has signed an $320k agreement to develop a novel 5G mmWave prototype to showcase a solution targeting the Indian 5G market.

The agreement includes the development of a 5G millimeter prototype based on Sivers’ newest highly integrated 5G mmWave RFIC, and antenna array integrated with the Intel Agilex baseband platform. The development project is expected to deliver a set of prototypes within five months.

The prototypes will be used in a field trial with one of the Indian mobile operators. After a successful field trial, it is expected that the customer will engage with Sivers to further industrialise the design and get ready for volume manufacturing to serve the Indian market.

Spectrum auctions in India concluded on August 1st, 2022, with the 5G mmWave FR2 26GHz band receiving bids worth $1.87 billion. This has spurred significant recent activity for the development of 5G mmWave infrastructure and devices in the Indian ecosystem.

The adoption of 5G is expected to increase India’s telecom industry’s revenue (total revenue including service and full system sales) by $12 billion every three years, based on market research by Techarc; and the industry is expected to reach $120 billion by the end of 2023. Research by Astute Analytica indicates that the Indian 5G market has the potential to become the second largest 5G market worldwide by the end of this decade.

“This agreement is interesting and important to Sivers for three reasons. The first and most obvious one is that it is a proof point that our new RFIC leads the competition with its strong performance and high level of integration, especially in a highly competitive market like India. The second reason is that this activity will expose us to one of the world’s top three telecom markets and, assuming we are successful, we could see very interesting volumes being deployed in a not-too-far future. The third reason is that it will secure baseband integration with one of the leading 5G baseband suppliers within the semiconductor industry ”, says Anders Storm, Group CEO, Sivers Semiconductors.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
