Peraso Technologies Inc. has developed a WiGig network ecosystem using its WiGig USB 3.0 adaptors at CES 2015. WiGig USB 3.0 adaptors are forecast to play a fundamental role in the emergence of WiGig enabled devices in the 2015 consumer electronics marketplace, the company indicated.

Peraso's WiGig RF IC is the smallest, highest performing on the market, ready for integration into next generation mobile and CE devices. The company will be demonstrating key WiGig applications, including: wireless 4K display, multi-gigabit file transfers and WiFi networking.

Peraso recently launched its 60GHz WiGig RF IC for consumer electronics, available in two BGA versions, the PRS1125, and the PRS1025, which includes an integrated antenna.

The PRS1025/1125 feature a silicon area is less than 5mm2, and the packaged devices are 49mm2 and 36mm2, respectively. Key features of the product include: P1dB of 14dBm, integrated antenna version (EIRP) of 24dBm, receiver noise figure of 4dB, transmit EVM of -24dB (64QAM, single-carrier) and receiver noise figure of 5dB.

Covering 57-66GHz, The RF ICs support up to MCS12 of the IEEE802.11ad specification and offer high-speed 1.5Gb/s OOK mode.

The high WiGig data rate of 4.6Gb/s facilitates a host of applications not available through standard WiFi connectivity. With the rapid growth of 4k video, WiGig is an ideal technology for high resolution, low latency wireless screen mirroring. Using WiGig, large media files are transferred between devices in a matter of seconds, not only providing the consumer with next generation convenience, but done so wirelessly. Moreover, as Internet access quickly advances to gigabit data rates, WiGig wireless connectivity ensures that consumer electronics devices keep pace with the entire network. This is critical for cloud-based applications where the user experience must be identical to using locally stored applications.

The PRS1025/1125 targets a variety of consumer electronics devices including mobile phones, laptops, tablets, monitors, TVs, WiFi access points. In particular, the RF IC coupled with the recently announced PRS4000 WiGig baseband IC, is geared for implementing a USB 3.0 dongle, a device that enables an entire ecosystem of legacy USB 3.0 enabled devices. Additionally, a compelling feature of the PRS1025/1125 is the support of OOK mode that allows customers to address a host of short range, low cost applications such as wireless connectors.
