RFMD and Freescale team up on ZigBee solutions
December 01, 2010 // Phil Ling
RFMD's newly introduced RF6535 ZigBee front end module (FEM) has been combined with Freescale's MC1321x System-in-Package (SiP) to create the RF6535/MC1321x reference design. The RF6535/MC1321x reference design claims to simplify RF design requirements, and reduce cost and complexity. It targets IEEE 802.15.4 designs/ZigBee Smart Energy and Home Area Network (HAN) applications.
RFMD's RF6535 features a 2.4GHz to 2.5GHz +22dBm power amplifier, Tx harmonic output filter, double-pole double-throw (DPDT) diversity switch, and a low-noise amplifier (LNA). Housed in a 3.5 x 3.5 x 0.5mm package, it is claimed to be three times smaller than competitive offerings.
The transceiver interface is a two-port Rx/Tx integrated balun and is specifically optimized for Smart Energy/AMI applications including smart meters, and HAN devices including Home Energy Gateways, In-home Displays and appliances.
Freescale's MC1321x family incorporates a low-power 2.4 GHz radio frequency transceiver and a microcontroller into a single LGA package. Coupled with RFMD's RF6535 FEM, the MC1321X is said to fit perfectly with most ZigBee applications in consumer electronics, energy management, health care, home automation, telecommunication services, and building and industrial automation.
