A new wireless transceiver was developed that boosts radio frequencies into 100-gigahertz territory, which is quadruple the speed of the upcoming 5G, or fifth-generation, wireless communications standard. The end-to-end transmitter-receiver is a 4.4-millimeter-square silicon chip capable of processing digital signals significantly faster and more energy-efficiently because of its digital-analog architecture. Having transmitters and receivers that can handle high-frequency data communications is vital for Internet of Things devices, autonomous vehicles, and vastly expanded broadband for streaming of high-definition video content and more.
