Realtek Semiconductor Corp. has developed a compact low-power CMOS RFIC transceiver for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. According to the company, the announcement provides a new benchmark for ultra-fast, ultra-small communications chip solutions.

The UWB CMOS RFIC transceiver features:

  • Ultra-compact design
  • The CMOS transceiver includes all the essential and peripheral RF functions, so only an external crystal and antenna are needed to complete an RF module, enabling a highly compact and neat solution for both embedded and add-on applications.

  • Ultra-small chip size
  • Compared with advanced WLAN (wireless local area network) RF transceivers, the Realtek UWB CMOS RFIC Transceiver achieves a die size five to twenty times smaller, opening up exciting possibilities for innovation in communication product development and applications.

  • Ultra-high data rates
  • An MBOA (Multi-Band OFDM Alliance) standard-compliant prototype system implemented with the Realtek UWB transceiver delivers 480Mbps and provides data throughput more than ten times that of state-of-the-art WLAN systems such as IEEE 802.11a/b/g.

  • Complete UWB solution on a single chip
  • The Realtek UWB transceiver is implemented in a standard CMOS logic process, enabling a true single-chip UWB solution.

  • Low power: 100mW
  • The Realtek RFIC transceiver consumes around 100 mW while delivering 480Mbps, providing one of the world's most energy-efficient wireless communication solutions.
