2.4GHz RF and ANT products soon available in 2.6x2.7mm WLCSP options
December 20, 2010 // Julien Happich
Nordic Semiconductor said it will expand its 2.4GHz RF and ANT product range with the addition of a brand new line-up of wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP) options as small as 2.6x2.7mm in size and occupying up to 5x less footprint area. Sampling in Q1 2011 and available for volume orders in Q2 2011 will be the nRF24AP2 (1- and 8-channel) WLCSP and nRF24LE1 WLCSP (Flash or OTP) options.
The products will be designed to meet the highly space-constrained needs of both existing and emerging sports, fitness and health applications such as wireless watches, bike computers, sensors, hearing aids and other devices designed to be worn on or near the body.
The new nRF24LE1 WLCSP option (Flash or OTP) will be a 400µm (regular array) 32-ball pitch BGA measuring 2.7x2.7mm in footprint area for the Flash version and 2.6x2.7mm for the OTP version. Both devices are 0.5mm in thickness.
