RFMD Unveils New Family Of Integrated Configurable Components
News Release from:
RF Micro Devices Inc
01 November 2010
RF Micro Devices today announced a new family of integrated configurable components for multiple markets. The highly integrated components, comprised of the RFFC207x and RFFC507x product families, perform multiple common RF functions in a reduced footprint while delivering the flexibility necessary to develop radio systems that operate over a wide dynamic range and across a broad range of frequencies and channel bandwidths.
The RFFC207x and RFFC507x product families integrate RFMD’s world-class fractional-N PLL/VCO combination with RF mixers to provide radio designers an elegant radio partitioning option with very high performance, superior integration and no compromise in flexibility. The RFFC207x and RFFC507x represent the second generation of RFMD’s innovative RF205x family of integrated configurable components, which enables radio designers across industries to shrink circuit board area, reduce risk and shorten product development time – all of which lower the total cost of radio implementation.
The RFFC207x and RFFC507x expand upon the capabilities of the RF205x family by enhancing performance and extending frequency range to serve even more industries and applications. General purpose in nature, RFMD’s newest family of integrated configurable components is applicable to fixed and mobile infrastructure, radio repeaters, super-heterodyne radios, diversity receivers, frequency band shifters, CATV, software-defined radios, point-to-point radios, satcom, VHF/UHF radios, military, industrial and other applications.
The product family’s wide bandwidth enables use in multiple systems and applications. The RFFC207x series has a local oscillator (LO) range from 85MHz to 2700MHz, with a 30MHz to 2700MHz mixer on-chip. The RFFC507x series has an LO range of 85MHz to 4500MHz with mixer range extending up to 6000MHz.
