RFaxis demos pure CMOS 802.11ac RF front-end ICs at Broadband World Forum

Fabless semiconductor firm RFaxis Inc of Irvine, CA, USA, which designs RF semiconductors and embedded antenna solutions for wireless connectivity and cellular mobility, is demonstrating and showcasing its pure CMOS 802.11ac RF front-end IC (RFeIC) technology at the Broadband World Forum 2013 in the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (22-24 October).

“Our products being demonstrated at the Broadband World Forum are designed to support the latest generation of broadband wireless access and media/entertainment devices, including home and enterprise access point (AP)/routers, set-top boxes, HD video bridges, media servers, and handsets/tablets,” says chairman & CEO Mike Neshat.

All featured RFaxis products are pin-to-pin compatible with existing solutions available on the market based on more expensive compound semiconductor processes, says RFaxis. The products being showcased are as follows:

  • RFX8050: A highly integrated, single-chip, single-die RFeIC that incorporates key RF functionality needed for IEEE 802.11ac WLAN systems operating in the 5.15-5.85GHz range.
  • RFX8051: Provides the same key features and functionalities as the RFX8050 but in a 3mm x 3mm x 0.55mm package.
  • RFX8422S: A fully integrated, single-chip, single-die RFeIC that incorporates all the RF functionality needed for dual-mode IEEE 802.11b/g/n/ac WLAN and Bluetooth operations including simultaneous WLAN and Bluetooth receive capability.
  • RFX240: A high-power, high-linearity power amplifier implemented in CMOS. The device is optimized to provide all functionality of transmit power amplification for IEEE 802.11g/n/ac applications in the 2.4GHz frequency range.

RFaxis’ product portfolio supports a range of products and technologies serving a broad base of customers across multiple high-growth market segments besides core WLAN applications. The firm’s products and technology are designed and optimized for use in broadband, high-bandwidth devices, multimedia and enterprise access point/router markets in addition to entry-level access point/routers, as well as devices and components for handset, smartphone, tablet, and laptop computing WiFi-enabled clients.
