RFaxis Launches CMOS Single-Chip/Single-Die 802.11ac RF Front-end IC
IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., a fabless semiconductor company focused on innovative,
next-generation RF solutions for the wireless connectivity and cellular
mobility markets, today announced it has started sampling its latest
5GHz 802.11ac RF Front-end IC (RFeIC), the RFX5010 to strategic
customers and reference design partners. RFaxis will showcase the
RFX5010 and additional new products, including its dual-band/dual-mode
CMOS RFeIC, at the upcoming 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show
(CES (News - Alert)) on January 8-11 in Las Vegas.
The RFX5010 is the latest addition to the company's rapidly expanding
pure CMOS-based single-chip/single-die RFeIC product family that
supports Wi-Fi applications across all existing and newly added
protocols including IEEE (News - Alert) 802.11b, g, a, n, and ac, for both 2.4GHz and
5GHz frequency bands. The RFX5010 chip provides more than 30 dB gain and
15dBm otput power at antenna with -35dB EVM for 802.11ac MCS9 with
256-QAM modulation and 80MHz channel bandwidth. It is pin-compatible
with the company's 11a/n RFeIC, the RFX5000, which is in production and
slated for volume shipment in Q1 2013. RFaxis will shortly be launching
a new, higher power 802.11ac RFeIC which is pin-compatible with RFX5010
and RFX5000, and will be targeting the 802.11ac AP, wireless router and
outdoor hotspot markets.
"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.
"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. We are pleased to offer our
customers and partners world's best-in-class 802.11ac RF front-end
solution at a price point substantially lower than existing legacy
802.11a/n front-end solutions offered by our competitors."
