You can’t see it, but it’s everywhere. Advances in Wi-Fi technology have made it possible to use them in all types of devices. Even home theatres, which ran predominantly on wires until recently, have stated using Wi-Fi technology.
To explore opportunities in this field, RFaxis has announced a partnership with Ozmo Devices for the development of a 5GHz 802.11a Wi-Fi Direct module reference design.
This design consists of the RFaxis single-chip, single-die RFX5000 CMOS RF Front-end Integrated Circuit (RFeIC).
Ozmo Devices provides low-power Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) solutions. The company offers various Wi-Fi peripheral devices that consist of mice, keyboards, gaming headsets, remote controls for TVs and set-top boxes, and now to home audio and high fidelity surround sound speaker systems.
Wi-Fi is important in today’s mobile phones, PCs, Set-top boxes, TVs and more. with the help of Ozmo Devices’ ultra-low power single-chip Wi-Fi Direct solution, battery-powered peripherals such as cordless mouse/keyboard products, remote controls and headsets/speakers can establish contact directly through Wi-Fi.
This wireless system would have already been created in to so many devices.
“We are delighted to see our increased attach rates within the fast-growing Home Area Network (HAN) market with the emergence of wireless sound bars,” stated Yongxi Qian, VP marketing and application engineering, RFaxis. “Wireless technology is a significant driving force of the next-generation Smart Home, including automatic control of sensor-networked appliances, converged voice/data communications, and high-quality audio/video entertainment. With an extensive portfolio of CMOS RF Front-end ICs, RFaxis is in the forefront of supporting multiple air standards within the home, including Wi-Fi Direct.”
Recently, the company started sampling its latest 5GHz 802.11ac RF Front-end IC (RFeIC) – RFX5010 – to its customers and reference design partners. For the company’s pure CMOS-based single-chip/single-die RFeIC product family, this serves as the newest addition.
The RFX5010 chip provides 30 dB gain and 15dBm output power at antenna, along with -35dB EVM for 802.11ac MCS9.
