June 13, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Lattice Semiconductor claims a ‘first-to-market’ with its 60 GHz SiBEAM technology for robust, low latency video transmission free from interference; the 4K UHD wireless link uses the license-free 60 GHz band for broad market applications including industrial, consumer, and medical dat streams.

The release is of a reference design that uses Lattice’s SiBEAM 60 GHz technology and SiI9396 HDMI 2.0 video bridge device to enable wireless distribution of 4K30 Blu-ray quality video over a wireless connection. It uses MOD6320-T and MOD6321-R wireless video modules based on the 60 GHz technology. The wireless reference design provides a high bandwidth, wireless audio/video interface compatible with the HDMI standard for in-room applications in a range of markets including medical and industrial.


Advantages of 60 GHz wireless technology include:

Visually lossless and near-zero latency video transmission

Up to 4K resolution

Robust to RF interference

Seamless and easy installation process in the home or enterprise environment

Supports latest HDCP 2.2 for the secure distribution of content
