RF Transceiver Reduces Mounting Area

In the race for space, the R2A60281LG 2G/3G, dual-mode radio frequency (RF) transceiver measures 7 mm x 7 mm x 0.6 mm, about 20% smaller than comparable devices. It combines multiple functions and eliminates the need for an analog baseband processor. The device integrates 2G (GPRS/EDGE) quad-band (850 MHz/900 MHz/1.8 GHz/1.9 GHz) and 3G (W-CDMA) quad-band (800 MHz/1.5 GHz/1.7 GHz/2 GHz) functionality and supports High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) categories 7 and 8 for data downloads at speeds up to 7.2 Mb/s as well as High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HPUPA). Other features include low-noise amplifiers, a loop filter circuit, HPA controls, a filter supporting CDMA2000, and a 312-Mb/s digital interface supporting 3G DIGRF operations. Available next month in a 120-pin LGA package, sample price is $9 each. RENESAS TECHNOLOGY AMERICA INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 382-7407.
