Unilumin in China is employing a 60GHz mmwave chip from STMicroelectronics for the wireless connection to its LED video displays Unilumin, the world’s largest supplier of LED 60A2 60GHz RF transceiver from STMicroelectronics to supply some extent to point, the high-data-rate transmission of up to six.25 Gbps over distances to a couple of centimeters. this is often aimed toward display screen walls and other large-data applications, simplifying the complex cabling requirements and reducing assembly costs.
The chip also suits industrial markets with an extended temperature range of -40 to +105°C and a variety of antenna configurations. The package footprint of 2.2 x 2.2 mm package footprint and power consumption of 70mW also reduces the space haunted by the wireless connection. Short distance wireless connections at 60GHz were a part of the WiGig standardization effort that became the 802.11ay standard but the main target in recent years has been more to cellular and glued wireless access systems.
“The ST60A2 contactless connectivity technology exposes a replacement world of innovative products and applications for advanced video solutions,” said Tao Zhang, director of Unilumin. “Our innovative solution, created with STMicroelectronics, is going to be applied in new LED-based display products which will be launched throughout 2021.”
“With Unilumin, an LED-based display market leader, having selected the ST60A2 to enhance the reliability of video links inside their equipment, we’ve together affirmed the worth of the ultra-high-speed link and its cost-effectiveness and demonstrated the facility of this new contactless connectivity technology to optimize existing solutions while creating the potential for brand spanking new use cases in several areas,” added John Carey, RFC Asia Marketing Director, STMicroelectronics.
