Ultra-low power 2.4GHz transceiver platform draws less than 10mW
August 03, 2012 // Julien Happich
The IcyTRX developed by CSEM is a new transceiver platform that consumes less than 10mW and is well suited to ultra-low power RF applications such as Bluetooth low energy, WirelessHART, and IEEE802.15.4.
The IcyTRX platform has been designed with the goal of reducing power consumption well beyond the state of the art, as well as allowing the use of small coin cell batteries, thus extending battery life and miniaturization far beyond that obtainable today. In addition to a market-leading power consumption of less than 8mA at 1.2V, IcyTRX offers a highly integrated design avoiding external matching components. With a footprint under 2mm2, the chip supports a variable data rate of up to 2MBits/s. Designed in a standard digital 90nm CMOS process, the IC is available as a silicon-proven IP and under license for integration into RF SoCs. Samples are available now.
