Micro Linear Corp., a developer of IC solutions for the wireless communications market, has selected Jazz Semiconductor as its foundry partner for its ML5800 offering a 5.8GHz single-chip FSK transceiver.

The ML5800 operates in the 5.8GHz ISM band, which provides clear communications even when used in close proximity to WLAN, Bluetooth and microwave ovens. According to Jazz, the transceiver's 1.5Mbps data rate allows for short data transfer times, low latency and direct sequence spreading, resulting in reduced interference problems and increased battery life. Similar to Micro Linear's 900MHz and 2.4GHz fully integrated transceivers, the ML5800 has automatic filter alignment, which is designed to eliminate manual tuning.

Initially positioned for the Digital Cordless Telephone market, the ML5800 is currently sampling to key accounts and is expected to be released to the general market in Q1 of 2004. With its high integration, low cost, and high data rate, Micro Linear believes the ML5800 transceiver is an efficient solution for consumer wireless streaming audio, video and high data rate data applications.
