Hi Henry and thanks for weighing in.

We've been watching the rise of 60 GHz for sometime. I know several folks are on the hunt for tri-band as the next big leap in I guess a sort of merged Wi-Fi and PAN.

I can't help wondering if this market will be quickly dominated by the few big Wi-Fi/BT players such as Broadcom, Qualcomm, Marvell.


In that scenario your move makes sense. Better position yourself for a possible acquisition for one of those companies (or Synopsys or ARM or someone), than try to duke it out with your own 60 GHz chips versus their highly integrated devcies.

Is that the plan?

Junko, thanks for your comments – based on current customer feedback we definitely see the demand for 60GHz technology as accelerating now.

Note that we 'pivoted' our business plan from fabless to System IP early last year when we realised that our unique Intellectual Property related to our HYDRA baseband architecture and wireless system expertise. Once the decision was made we were then able to quickly engage revenue generating customers – which has allowed us to bootstrap BWT's growth over the last 12months in a very cost effective way.  We see this as an example of an 'extreme-lean' startup model designed for the semi-conductor funding environment of the last few years.

We have several further interesting developments that will become public over the coming month so very open to having a chat later this month.

WiGig taking off?

A startup fabless chip vendor changing its business model to become an IP company is usually never a good sign. But judging from the funding Blu Wireless is getting, WiGig may be finally getting interesting...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
