How important is millimetre wave



In recent times, Chipright have had a lot of traction from Europe’s largest tier 1, multinational IC design companies in seeking assistance in delivering expert level millimetre wave engineers to work on some of the most challenging and testing projects possible. Whilst the projects are challenging, they do offer a reward of working on “state of the art” technologies and have drawn attention from many highly experienced and dedicated engineers.
Millimetre wave, which is also known as extremely high frequency or very high frequency can be used for high-speed wireless communication devices.

Millimetre wave is an undeveloped band of spectrum that can be used in a broad range of products and services like high speed, point-to-point wireless local area networks (WLANs) and broadband access.
In telecommunications, millimetre wave is used for a variety of services on mobile and wireless networks, as it allows for higher data rates up to 10 Gbps.

Engineering and Technology wiki explain that the millimetre-wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum is usually considered to be the range of wavelengths from 10 millimetres (0.4 inches) to 1 millimetre (0.04 inches).

This means millimetre waves are longer than infrared waves or x-rays, for example, but shorter than radio waves or microwaves. The millimetre-wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum corresponds to radio band frequencies of 30 GHz to 300 GHz and is sometimes called the Extremely High Frequency (EHF) range.

The high frequency of millimetres waves as well as their propagation characteristics (that is, the ways they change or interact with the atmosphere as they travel) make them useful for a variety of applications including transmitting large amounts of computer data, cellular communications, and radar.

One of the greatest and most important uses of millimeter waves is in transmitting large amounts of data. Every kind of wireless communication, such as the radio, cell phone, or satellite, uses specific range of wavelengths or frequencies. Each application provider (such as a local television or radio broadcaster) has a unique “channel” assignment, so that they can all communicate at the same time without interfering with each other. These channels have “bandwidths” (also measured in either wavelength or frequency) that must be large enough to pass the information from the broadcaster’s transmitter to the user. For example, a telephone conversation requires only about 6 kHz of bandwidth, while a TV broadcast, which carries much larger amounts of information, requires about 6 MHz.
