RF technology plays a huge role in designing wireless connectivity and cellular mobility products. The company’s technology offers combined, single-die, single-chip RFeICs that considerably simplify the design task as well as enhances overall performance.
Recently, RFaxis announced that it had begun sampling its latest 5GHz 802.11ac RF Front-end IC (RFeIC) –RFX5010 – to its customers and reference design partners. This serves as the newest addition to the company’s pure CMOS-based single-chip/single-die RFeIC product family.
Along with -35dB EVM for 802.11ac MCS9, The RFX5010 chip offers 30 dB gain and 15dBm output power at antenna. This comes with 256-QAM modulation and 80MHz channel bandwidth. Along with the company's 11a/n RFeIC, the RFX5000, it is pin-compatible will be made available from Q1 2013.
The RFaxis family of solutions consists of the full spectrum of wireless platforms such as WLAN, Bluetooth, WHDI, ZigBee, Smart Energy/Home, ISM, transmit and receive switching circuitry, high efficiency PA (Power Amplifier), associated matching network and LNA (Low Noise Amplifier).
“By continuously pushing the envelope to achieve superior performance, higher integration and lower cost, RFaxis is now able to redefine the competitive landscape for 802.11ac. We recognize the Wi-Fi industry's rapid move towards 11ac products that offer users enhanced wireless experience with higher data throughput, extended operating range and longer battery life,” said Mike Neshat, chairman and CEO of RFaxis in a statement. “Built upon RFaxis' patented single-chip/single-die RFeIC architecture and new design innovations, our engineering team has delivered a pure-CMOS RFeIC with full 802.11ac support.”
Recently, the company also revealed that its line of 5GHz WLAN RF front-end solutions, the RFX5000 and RFX5000B, will start production next month. RFX5000 is a fully integrated, single-chip, single-die RFeIC (RF Front-end Integrated Circuit), offering all the RF functionality required for a typical IEEE (News - Alert) 802.11a/n WLAN system operating in the 4.9-5.85GHz range. The RFX5000 architecture brings together the PA, LNA, transmit and receive switching circuitry, the associated matching network and the harmonic filter in a CMOS single-chip device.
