Key Differentiating Features of the Fujikura PAAM
The Fujikura PAAM is a high performance phased array antenna module with a novel integrated antenna, and supports concurrent dual polarized beams in both transmission and reception (Fig.1). The PAAM integrates best-in-class mmWave-ICs developed in-house using an industry leading SiGe BiCMOS process. The PAAM features extremely low noise figure (NF) characteristics and enables a large link margin for expanded coverage. Tunable true-time-delay-type phase shifters support precise and independent phase and amplitude control over a wide frequency range. The unique phase shifter not only enables simple beam-steering control which allows accurate beam steering with fine resolution, but also allows calibration-free operation making PAAM installation much easier. The phase shifter also maintains the transmitted or received signals undistorted by providing invariant group delay and unchanged beam direction in a wide frequency range. In addition, Fujikura PAAM provides superior digital reconfigurability allowing (1) flexible choices in the trade-off space between NF and linearity --- this enables a wide range of coverage applications simply through digital reconfiguration of the PAAM, and (2) on-chip support for 1000s of beam configurations. These are exactly the features highly desired by 5G wireless equipment manufacturers.

5G mmWave Market Growth
Currently, 5G deployments are accelerating around the world and mmWave bands are expected to play a significant role in enhancing the network capabilities. According to the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), by the end of August, 2020, 397 operators in 129 countries and territories had announced investments in 5G. The deployment of 5G mmWave has started primarily in the US market for FWA and MWA, and we are now in the early stages. Markets are expecting substantial increase in 5G mmWave use cases including both outdoor and indoor deployments around the world. Fujikura will contribute to this market growth and benefit from it by providing 5G mmWave infrastructure customers with best-in-class PAAM products.

“Fujikura is announcing its first 5G mmWave RF-IC products for mobile infrastructure. Fujikura n257/n258/n261 PAAM products leverage field proven 5G mmWave IC1 and antenna in package2 technologies developed at IBM Research and enhanced by a Fujikura-led Joint Development Program3,4 . Leveraging our expertise in antenna design and substrate technologies as well as our long history and expertise in delivering differentiating products to the telecom industry, we are excited to introduce our new PAAM product family,” said Kenji Nishide, Fujikura R&D Managing Executive Officer. “Fujikura’s PAAM sets new benchmarks in terms of performance and low power consumption with the highest level of integration for 5G mmWave RF-ICs, which will contribute to growth and expansion of 5G mmWave networks and services.”

Secure Communities Forum: Behavioural Insights Can Assist Governments in the Post-Pandemic World11.6.2021 10:15:00 CEST | Press release

The Secure Communities Forum, a global collaboration of security professionals, has convened a leading panel of experts to discuss how behavioural science can impact positive social cohesion, build on the concept of positive citizenship, and encourage positive individual behaviours. The virtual event was attended by 134 people from 18 countries. The Secure Communities Forum convened the webinar in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Governments and law enforcement agencies have used behavioural science to encourage adherence to public health measures like social distancing and mask-wearing. Lindsay Juarez, Director at Irrational Labs, USA, opened the session, offering the view that we assume humans are rational, which is not the case. She said: “Behavioural science is about setting people up for success and breaking through the noise. Information isn't enough to change behaviour, the decision-making context matters. “People don’t always act in their own long-term best interests,
