Carlisle Interconnect Technologies and Maja Systems Showcase Millimeter-Wave Interconnect Technology at DesignCon 2019

Surface mount millimeter-wave antenna enables gigabit connectivity for data-center, industrial, and automotive applications

San Jose, CA – January 30, 2019 – Maja Systems, as part of a successful collaboration with Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT), announces live demonstrations of millimeter-wave connectivity technology, for data-center, industrial, and automotive applications, using the SPL-100 surface-mount millimeter-wave antenna.

CarlisleIT’s Signal Integrity team, working alongside the designers at Maja Systems, enjoyed the challenge of designing a high-performance interconnect both capable of supporting Maja’s vision for the SPL-100 antenna and ready for high volume production.

This compact antenna features many of the characteristics seen on planar arrays and horn antennas, at a fraction of the cost and area requirements. The SPL-100 antenna exhibits 10 dBi gain,10 GHz bandwidth, and is available in right- and left-handed circular polarization.

In the CarlisleIT booth, Maja Systems is demonstrating its AV-1 8.0 Gbps autonomous vehicle backhaul system and the IS-1 untethered 1.0 Gbps industrial interconnect, enabled by the SPL-100 antenna. Paired with Maja millimeter-wave CMOS technology, the SPL-100 enables ultra-high-density antenna arrays for wireless gigabit connectivity, addressing a variety of markets, including data-center, industrial, and automotive applications.

“The combination of CarlisleIT’s world-class manufacturing and Maja Systems’ agility and innovation is resulting in a new class of solutions for the rapidly growing mmW market.” Said Joy Laskar, CEO at Maja Systems.

“Carlisle Interconnect Technologies is very excited and pleased to be part of such innovative solution,” said Emad Soubh, Director of Product Management-Signal Integrity, CarlisleIT.

CarlisleIT’s booth at Design Con 2019 — Booth 514 — will have product samples and live demonstrations.
