RF Micro Devices Inc. (RFMD), a leader in the design and manufacture of high performance semiconductor components, announced it has extended its portfolio of integrated configurable components to include products for the cellular repeater and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) markets. The new integrated configurable components include the RF2057 RF synthesizer with integrated mixers and the RF2059 RF transverter.
RFMD's integrated configurable components deliver unmatched levels of flexibility and functional integration to designers of radio systems. By integrating multiple common radio frequency (RF) functions into highly integrated, size-reduced packages, the integrated configurable components enable designers to develop radio systems that operate over a wide dynamic range and across a broad range of frequencies and channel bandwidths. The RF2057 and RF2059 join the RF2051, RF2052 and RF2053, which were introduced in April 2008 and have been adopted in markets as diverse as cellular, defense and broadband cable systems.
Alastair Upton, General Manager of RFMD's Broadband Products business unit, said, "The RF2057 and RF2059 demonstrate RFMD's commitment to delivering valuable innovations that support our customers' success. The unique system partitioning and functional integration of RFMD's integrated configurable components help radio designers shrink circuit board area, reduce risk, simplify implementation and shorten product development time, thereby lowering the cost of implementation."
