Analog Devices Introduces RF Transceivers
Analog Devices introduced RF-to-digital baseband transceivers, designed to enable the IEEE 802.16d/e mobile WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) standard for mobile communications devices such as cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and handheld multimedia devices. WiMAX terminals enable wireless broadband connectivity with dramatically lower installation costs than competitive wired solutions. As WiMAX evolves from a fixed-line protocol to one that increasingly serves portable communications applications, device makers require smaller, more energy-efficient solutions that meet the cost, space and power budgets of mobile communications terminals. Building on ADI's AD9352 and AD9353 family of integrated WiMAX transceivers introduced in 2006, the company launched AD9354 and AD9355. These transceivers consume less power than other transceivers in their class, and are available in a 20% smaller package.
