RF Micro Devices Inc. (RFMD), a leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, announced the introduction of the ML2730, a single-chip fully integrated Frequency Shift Keyed (FSK) transceiver with integrated power amplifier (PA) and low noise amplifier (LNA). The ML2730 expands RFMD's portfolio of ISM band single-chip transceivers, covering 900 MHz, 2.4 and 5.8 GHz.
The ML2730 is optimized for a variety of wireless media applications (audio, video and data) operating in the 2.400 to 2.485 GHz unlicensed ISM band. The high data rate capability of the ML2730 supports streaming applications like wireless audio and wireless video; the ML2730 is also suitable for a variety of radio controlled applications. By integrating the PA and LNA on a single chip, the ML2730 enables customers to develop robust wireless links with improved sensitivity and output power while reducing both costs and board size.
