RFaxis, Inc. (www.rfaxis.com), a leading fabless semiconductor company focused on developing innovative, next-generation RF solutions for the wireless connectivity and cellular mobility markets, has announced its partnership with British chipmaker CSR plc (http://csr.com) for reference designs aimed at multiple wireless connectivity markets.
CSR provides a broad portfolio of connectivity chipsets which enable high quality, high reliability Wi-Fi / Bluetooth end user experiences, including seamless high fidelity wireless audio and whole-home coverage. The reference designs feature RFaxis single-chip, single-die CMOS RF Front-End Integrated Circuit (RFeIC™) technology and will be paired with CSR’s UniFi® CSR6030™ 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi solution and CSR8811™ and CSR8311™ Bluetooth® low energy radio chipsets.
Apart from reducing the time to design and market, RFaxis RFeIC’s level of integration offers device manufacturers a very simple solution that can be implemented as a plug and play.
The RFaxis technology helps OEMs reduce their product development cycles to as low as a few weeks, while competing solutions take months. It satisfies every performance criterion set forth by component manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
