The mmWave IC will also find use in next-generation, low-cost hybrid automotive communication terminals – allowing always-on connection for automobiles.

The chip is being developed as part of ESA’s Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) project and the CASSIS project (Connected Automotive Satellite Service Integrated System), which is being led by the UK Satellite Applications Catapult (UKSAC).

The device will operate at up to 31.5 GHz and it will form part of an affordable, consumer-scale communications module supporting a flat panel electronically steerable phased array antenna. The module will communicate with geostationary and low earth orbit (LEO) satellites, 4G/5G infrastructure and Wi-Fi communications to deliver connectivity to cars, small vessels and aircraft.

The first samples of the IC will be available for evaluation in Q2 2020.
