Realtek Semiconductor Corp. disclosed that they have successfully developed a compact low-power CMOS RFIC transceiver for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications.

Featuring innovative signal processing system engineering, direct-conversion architecture and compact circuit design, this new transceiver consumes around 100mW while delivering 480Mbps, providing one of the world's most energy-efficient wireless communication solutions, said the company.

This new 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. Compared with advanced WLAN RF transceivers, Realtek said, the device achieves a die size five to twenty times smaller.

The press release also stated that an MBOA (Multi-Band OFDM Alliance) standard-compliant prototype system implemented with Realtek's 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.
