Berkana Wireless Inc. introduced complete radio reference design kits to accelerate the development of cellular handsets and handhelds based on the BKW9000 family of single-chip quad-band GSM/GPRS cmos rf transceivers.

Berkana is offering kits supporting 2.5G baseband platforms from Agere Systems, Texas Instruments and other companies.

The kits consist of a radio reference board, BoM, schematics, Gerber files, hardware user's manual and radio driver software. The radio reference board represents the complete signal path from baseband to antenna and includes the BKW9000 transceiver, antenna switch module, power amplifier module, SAW filters and associated matching components. Berkana conducts complete 3GPP TS 51.010-1 system tests of each reference design to ensure that its BKW9000 transceivers and radio software drivers are optimized for a given GSM/GPRS baseband platform.
