Cavendish Kinetics recently announced the availability of production samples for its tunable RF capacitors. The Cavendish Digital Variable Capacitor (DVC) technology aims to improve spectral efficiency, coverage and customer retention for network operators.

Shipped as a chip scale package (CSP), the DVC is used to tune antennas, power amplifiers and filters to improve RF connection quality and signal strength. The company's technology is touted to meet stringent technical requirements while also fitting slim form factors.

Cavendish high-performance, breakthrough DVC products for manufacturers of smartphones and other wireless devices will help resolve the industry's toughest connectivity challenges. Use of internal antennas and demand for larger displays, as well as proliferating features and frequency bands, have contributed to a widening gap between actual and theoretical data rates for wireless devices. Radio performance is reduced significantly in many cases, creating challenges for device designers and network operators and frustration for consumers. As usage of bandwidth-intensive video and interactive gaming continues to increase, the performance gap is becoming not just a technical issue, but an economic one for wireless operators.
