RFaxis introduces CMOS single-chip/single-die 802.11ac RFeIC

Fabless semiconductor firm RFaxis Inc of Irvine, CA, USA, which designs RF semiconductors and embedded antenna solutions for the wireless connectivity and cellular mobility markets, has started sampling its latest 5GHz 802.11ac RF Front-end IC (RFeIC), the RFX5010 to strategic customers and reference design partners.

RFX5010 is the latest addition to the firm's pure CMOS-based single-chip/single-die RFeIC product family that supports Wi-Fi applications across all existing and newly added protocols including IEEE 802.11b, g, a, n, and ac, for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands. It provides more than 30 dB gain and 15dBm output power at antenna with -35dB EVM for 802.11ac MCS9 with 256-QAM modulation and 80MHz channel bandwidth. It is pin-compatible with the firm'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.

"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 RFaxis’ chairman & CEO Mike Neshat. “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."

RFaxis will showcase the RFX5010 and additional new products, including its dual-band/dual-mode CMOS RFeIC, at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on 8-11 January in Las Vegas.
