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--()--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
