Sunway Communication Partners with BMF to Develop Next Gen Antenna

BY Laura Galloway

May 12, 2022 San Diego, CA –  Sunway Communication, a global leading supplier of electronic components and modules related to RF, such as antenna modules, wireless charging modules, EMC/EMI products, precision connectors & cables, and passive components has partnered with Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) to develop next generation antennas.  The companies have opened a joint development lab in San Diego, California.

For 5G and future antennas, advanced manufacturing techniques have evolved to meet the needs of small size with precises dimensions.  The RF industry is moving more fully into mm-wave applications and with this, antennas and waveguides will need to get smaller and the traditional manufacturing techniques become more challenging.

“We have been looking for alternative approaches to meet the demands of miniaturization.  BMF has quickly developed their technology and applied it in multiple industries.   This joint development agreement will accelerate our efforts and advance our leadership position,” stated by Dr. Wilson Wu, Sunway EVP and GM of Sunway USA.

“We are excited to partner with Sunway to help bring 3D printing technology into this application space” stated John Kawola, CEO, Boston Micro Fabrication.  “BMF brings the expertise of micro fabrication while Sunway brings their long experience with high value communication components”.

This collaboration is led by Dr. Howard Liu, Sunway Chief Scientist/VP, Head of Sunway Antenna Research Institute and Chunguang Xia, BMF’s CTO/Co-Founder.
