Collaboration Targets Packaging for Millimeter-Wave Applications
Quik-Pak Targets 5G, IoT with RF-Capable Packages
Quik-Pak, Agile Microwave Technology, and OMMIC successfully completed electrical RF characterization of OMMIC’s millimeter-wave die to 43GHz in Quik-Pak OmPP packages and confirmed 5G-capable frequencies.
ESCONDIDO, Calif., Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quik-Pak, together with Agile Microwave Technology (AgileMwT) and OMMIC SA, today announced its line of JEDEC-compliant air-cavity QFN packages. The Quik-Pak open-molded plastic packages (OmPP®) are RF-capable to data rates of 43GHz, which will help speed availability of semiconductor devices for 5G and internet of things (IoT) millimeter-wave applications. The packages are available now from Quik-Pak as both off-the-shelf and custom offerings.
Each company contributed core technology to the project: Quik-Pak’s OmPP air-cavity open-molded QFN packages, AgileMwT’s interconnect design
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is looking to introduce a “liveness” feature to myGovID, the Australian’s government’s digital identity credential.
The agency, which handles myGovID, has gone to market seeking a supplier to deliver a software solution that will allow people who are registering to prove they are a live person and physically present, as well as allow them to take a selfie to verify their identity against a stored identity document, such as their passport or driver’s licence.
The ATO quietly released the app last year to enable citizens to have their identity verified once so they could access government services online using their verified identity, rather than having to continually be verified by each Commonwealth entity.
The ATO emphasised that the successful contractor would need to adhere to strict security guidelines. These include delivering a security management and governance functionality in accordance with the Australian Cyber Security Centre
