Front end chip

Wednesday, 18 October, 2006 | Supplied by:

RadioScape has used its RF software to create what it claims is the first, software-controlled, single chip RF front end that can handle six frequency bands - band III and L-band for digital audio broadcasting, medium wave, long wave and short wave for AM and digital radio mondiale and band II for FM.

The chip combines with a standard DSP chip that runs RadioScape's baseband digital photo software and also controls the RF IC to form a two chip solution, which reduces the power consumption and size of modules compared with current generation solutions.

Until now, the only way to create a comparable multi-band digital radio was to create independent RF front ends for each of the different frequency bands each consuming power and adding to the bulk of the product.

The IC will be used to create a range of modules that maintain the size and pin configurations of existing modules.
