Offering an attractive alternative to the more complex and expensive Bluetooth(TM) solutions, the new AMIS ASTRIC (Application Specific Transmit and Receive IC) mixed-signal RF ASIC technology provides a scalable path for integrating board-level and modular transmitter, receiver and transceiver applications into true SoC implementations.
ASTRIC solutions are ideally suited to license-free, one-way and two-way wireless designs that require data rates up to 1mbps for short range applications.
Discussing the ASTRIC technology, Bob Klosterboer, vice president of Mixed-signal ASICs at AMIS, states: "The ASTRIC mixed-signal RF ASIC technology platform provides manufacturers of low data rate wireless applications reduced system cost, smaller form factors, lower power consumption and faster time-to-market, as well as enhanced reliability and improved product security."
