RFaxis starts sampling CMOS RFX5000 RF front-end IC product

RFaxis, a fabless semiconductor company focused on
innovative, next-generation RF solutions for the wireless connectivity and
cellular mobility markets, announced that it has started sampling their pure
CMOS RFX5000 RF Front-end Integrated Circuit (RFeIC) product designed to enable
robust wireless connectivity for next-generation 802.11a/n/p wireless
connectivity applications in the 5GHz frequency band, including ultra-mobile
devices, high definition multimedia streaming devices, routers/access points,
and wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE).

“We’ve made tremendous progress migrating our
connectivity products to pure CMOS since we announced samples of our first pure
CMOS products for 2.4GHz wireless applications less than a year ago,” said
Mike Neshat, chairman and CEO of RFaxis.

“The RFX5000 is a crucial strategic milestone not
just for RFaxis but also for the entire WLAN ecosystem as key players are
facing challenges in meeting market demands. Once again, we prove wrong those
who claimed it is impossible to design and deliver a complete, fully
integrated, plug and play, single-chip/single-die RFeIC using CMOS silicon, and
we will continue to defy conventional wisdom,” Neshat added.

The RFX5000 RFeIC is a single-chip/single-die,
complete, fully integrated RF Front-end on pure CMOS silicon, and covers the
full 802.11a/n/p frequency band (4.90 to 5.95 GHz).

The RFX5000 comes complete with a power amplifier, low
noise amplifier, switching, on-chip harmonic filters, power detection, matching
circuitry, CMOS compatible control logic and high level ESD protection on all
package pins. The RFX5000 is available in a standard 3x3x0.5mm QFN package and
will be in full production at the end of Q4, 2011.
