Microchip Technology introduced the SST12CP12 power amplifier. The SST12CP12 is a 2.4 GHz high-power and high-gain power amp. The chip supports the 256-QAM ultra-high data rate modulation. The SST12CP12 is available now for sampling and volume production, in a 3x3x0.55 mm, 16-pin QFN package. It is priced at $0.976 each, in 10,000-unit quantities.
Microchip Technology introduced their SST11CP16 5 GHz power amplifier (PA). The SST11CP16 provides high output power with extra-low EVM. The power amplifier extends the range of 802.11ac systems. The Microchip SST11CP16 RF power amplifier is available now in a 3x3x.45 mm, 16-pin QFN package. It is priced at $0.86 each (10,000-unit quantities). Sampling and volume production are both available now.
Microchip Technology introduced their SST12LF03 RF front-end module for WLAN IEEE 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth systems. The SST12LF03 includes a transmitter power amplifier, a receiver low-noise amplifier (LNA) and a low-loss antenna switch — in one integrated, compact package. The high level of integration simplifies board design and extends the range of wireless systems. It is ideal for WLAN/BT embedded applications where small size and high performance are required. The new Microchip device is available in a 20-pin, 3mm x 3mm UQFN package for $0.61 each (10,000-unit quantities). Samples and volume-production quantities are available now.
Microchip Technology introduced their SST11CP15 RF power amplifier. The SST11CP15 amp features an output power of 23 dBm at mask compliance of 6 Mbps (at 3.3V) and high linear output power of 18 dBm at 2.5% EVM, using 802.11a OFDM 54 Mbps at 3.3V, and 20 dBm at 5.0V. The SST11CP15 RF power amplifier is available now in a 2 mm x 2 mm x .55 mm, 12-pin QFN package for $0.66 each (10,000-unit quantities). The Microchip chip is ideal for 5 GHz IEEE 802.11a/n WLAN embedded applications.
embWiSe Technologies, the only third party vendor to offer SDIO stacks on different embedded OS platforms, had announced support for its SDIOWorx package on Microsoft’s Windows CE OS. Riding on the decent success of its SDIOWorx package with SDIO-WiFi support on popular embedded OS platform, embWiSe had developed and ported its SDIOWorx package on Microsoft’s Windows CE 6.0 as well. embWiSe is also supporting SDIO-WiFi drivers for leading WLAN chipsets with SDIOWorx for WinCE. embWiSe plan to target multimedia applications like the fast growing PMP/ Video Surveillance Camera, Portable Navigation Devices market as well as industrial control and Medical Devices.
