iPhone 12 & iPad – Apple Likely to bring in mmWave Technology in the 5G Devices

In the last few columns on the iPhones to be released in 2020, there was a mention of the mmWave technology. There are studies that conclude that the Cupertino headquartered tech giant is working on introducing at least one iPhone this year as a 5G phone working on the mmWave technology. The latest information coming from Taiwan claims that a company from there will be supplying this module to Apple to be fitted on the iPhones.

Like 5G, mmWave Too has a Short Coverage Area

It is already public knowledge that 5G can offer tremendous speeds of data download and upload. However, its coverage will be limited. This means the 5G device has to be as close to the source of the connectivity as possible to enjoy the best data speeds. The same applies to the mmWave technology as well. The Taiwanese company Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) by name, says it will be supplying the mmWave modules to Apple during this year. The rumor is that Apple is keen to bring out its devices in this technology at least in one of its iPhones and one iPad in 2020 itself. The news from Taiwan is important since earlier reports had suggested that Apple was yet to locate a vendor for the modules.

Alongside mmWave, the sub-6GHz technology for mobile connectivity is also referred to. One recent research report had indicated that one iPhone 12 model will have either mmWave or sub-6GHz technology included in it. All these are yet to be confirmed by Apple. Experts say the difference between the two is that the sub-6GHz technology may offer wider coverage than mmWave. It is not yet certain which of these Apple will go with.

Within these technologies, there are two types; the FC_AiP (flip-chip antenna-in-package) technology and the InFO_AiP technology. The above-referred ASE, Taiwan uses the FC_AIP technology in its modules. Apple’s regular vendor in the past from Taiwan, TSMC is also capable of supplying these modules for its iPhones and iPads. TSMC relies on the second type of technology, InFO_AIP indicated above. The modules made by ASE may be slightly larger in size, according to this report.
