Mitsubishi Electric Develops 28GHz Massive-Element Antenna And RF Module For 5G Base Stations

Compact module achieves wide bandwidth and wide-angle beam forming

TOKYO - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) has developed a compact massive-element antenna and RF module that achieves a wide 800MHz bandwidth and wide-angle beamforming for 28GHz communications in fifth-generation (5G) radio base stations. Going forward, Mitsubishi Electric will confirm the module’s performance for high-speed, large-capacity communication, aiming at early commercialization. The status of development will be presented at the Brooklyn 5G Summit* to be held in New York City from April 19 to 21.
*Forum for discussing 5G wireless technologies organized by NOKIA and NYU WIRELESS, a research center, at NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Key Features

  1. Wide bandwidth achieves high-speed, large-capacity communication
    • Wideband high-frequency circuitry enables communication with a wide 800MHz bandwidth.
  2. Wide-angle beamforming expands area coverage
    • Beam control technology is combined with a proprietary massive 256-element antenna and RF device.
    • Wide-angle beam forming at ±45 degrees horizontally contributes to expanded area coverage.
  3. Compact antenna and RF module for easy installation
    • Highly efficient integration of RF device realizes compact size
