Founded in 2013, Chengdu Xphased Technology Co., Ltd. is a private high-tech enterprise dedicated to microwave and mmWave active phased array chips and antennas. The company is located at No. 2106, 21/F, Building 10, Tianfu New Valley, No. 399, West Section of Fucheng Avenue, High-tech Zone, Chengdu, China, with a registered capital of RMB 48.914 million, and a total office area and research and production area of about 5,000 square meters.
Xphased has been dedicated to mmWave phased array technology R&D for many years and has developed a series of products for mass production based on its rich engineering experience in the fields of RF chip design, module and antenna component R&D, phased array testing equipment R&D, and more.
At present, the company, mainly based on R&D workforce, has over 200 full-time employees. The core R&D team members of the company boast strong R&D technical capabilities and rich research and production management experience in chip/module R&D, serialized antenna component R&D, scenario-based product application solutions, and related process production technologies, fully automated testing equipment, etc.
Xphased pays much attention to the cooperation of industry, academia, research and application, among which, the "Joint R&D Center of mmWave Chip Technology" was established with Southeast University; the "Phased Array Chip and System Joint Laboratory" was established with Purple Mountain Laboratories: Networking Communications and Security and Shennan Circuits. Based on its cooperation with Tsinghua University and other units, Xphased has successively won the bid and undertaken two major national scientific research projects respectively in December 2019 and April 2020. It also won the bid and undertook major national projects in December 2020 jointly with Xidian University.
In August 2020, led by academicians under the commission of CEA, including Wu Hequan, Chen Zuoning, Li Guojie, Lyu Yueguang and Ding Wenhua, together with 10 other experts from CAICT, CMCC, Huawei, China Datang, ZTE, Fudan University, University of Science and Technology of China, National University of Defense Technology, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, and University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, the mmWave phased array chip and large-scale array antenna was identified and categorized as "International Leading Level". At the World 5G Convention held on November 26, 2020, the company, together with CMCC and many other units, participated in the release of the "White Paper on Space-Air-Ground Integrated Communication System". In March 2021, the "CMOS mmWave Chip and Large-scale Integrated Phased Array" research project of Xphased was selected as the "Ten Major Scientific and Technological Progresses of China's Colleges and Universities in 2020". In January 2022, Xphased won the first prize of the Technical Invention Award of China Institute of Electronics for its "CMOS mmWave Chip and Large-scale Integrated Phased Array Technology and Application" project. In April 2022, Xphased's "Ka-band Satellite Communication Flat Panel Phased Array Antenna" was selected for the Guidance Catalog for the Promotion and Application of the First Set of Software of Major Technical Equipment in Sichuan Province (2022 Edition).
As of the end of October 2022, the company has obtained 81 invention patents, 62 utility models, 3 integrated circuit layouts, 10 appearance patents, and 22 software copyrights, and has declared 62 invention patents, 2 appearance patents, and 14 international patents (12 inventions, and 2 utility models).
Xphased's strategies for phased array technology are made on the basis of cost reduction and mass production. So far, chip design, chip packaging, phased array antenna components and mmWave test system development are involved. The products currently in mass production include the CMOS phased array chips, phased array antenna panel, and phased array rapid test systems for satellite communications (Ka and Ku bands) and 5G mmWave scenarios. In addition to the sales of the above products, CNAS Civil Phased Array Testing Laboratory of Xphased can also provide professional phased array test services.
