Communication ICs are integrated circuits used in general telecommunication electronic modules that enable the transmission, reception and analysis of data and signals.
Bluetooth® chips are board level components which broadcast in the 2.4 GHz industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) radio band.
Cellular modem chips include a variety of emerging protocols and technologies, including UMTS chips and EDGE chips.
Chip antennas are semiconductor ICs used to collect or radiate electromagnetic waves.
Delay lines are devices used to slow down a signal by a time interval in an electrical network. There are two basic delay line technologies: passive and active.
Error correction chips are semiconductor ICs that are used to check and to correct data transmission errors.
GPRS chips use general packet radio service (GPRS), a standard for wireless communication with a throughput rate of 115 kilobits per second.
GPS chips and modules compare signals from several geo-positioning satellites to determine position on the Earth's surface. GPS is an initialism for global positioning system.
I/Q modulators and I/Q demodulators change the amplitude, frequency, or phase of a carrier signal in order to transmit information. I/Q modulators split an incoming data stream into its in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) components, mix the resulting signals with local oscillators that are 90º apart in phase, and then combine the outputs vectorially in a 0º mixer.
IC modems enable computers to transmit data over telephone lines or via wireless signals.
IC phase-locked loops (PLL) are closed-loop frequency controls that are based on the phase difference between the input signal and the output signal of a controlled oscillator.
LAN chips provide wireless local area network (LAN) connectivity in a system-on-chip platform.
Network and communication chips are semiconductor integrated circuits (IC) used in telecommunication devices and systems.
Oscilloscopes translate an electronic signal into a pattern or waveform on a screen. As it is traced across the screen, the waveform creates a signature of the signal's characteristics.
Packet switching chips are communication integrated circuits (ICs) used in packet-switched networks to rout packets between network nodes.
Quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) modulators and binary phase shift keying (BPSK) modulators are used to change certain characteristics (amplitude, frequency or phase) of a carrier signal in order to transmit information. The changes in the parameter(s) of the carrier are made in accordance with an information-bearing signal (modulation signal).
RF and wireless chips are integrated circuits (IC) that are designed specifically for radio frequency (RF), microwave, and other wireless communications or data transmission applications.
RF frequency converters are integrated component assemblies required for converting microwave signals to lower (or intermediate) or higher frequency range for further processing.
RF frequency multipliers are nonlinear devices that produce an output signal with a frequency that is larger than the frequency of a corresponding input signal by a predetermined factor.
RF phase detectors and comparators are circuits or instruments that provide a DC output voltage proportional to the difference in phase between two RF signals.
RF phase shifters are twin-ported devices that alter the phase of an output signal in response to an external signal.
RF receivers are electronic devices that enable a particular radio signal to be separated from all others being received and converted into a format for video, voice, or data.
RF transceivers are electronic devices that receive and demodulate an RF signal, then modulate and transmit a new signal.
RF transmitters are electronic devices consisting of an oscillator, modulator, and other circuits that produce an RF signal.
RF upconverters and RF downconverters are integrated assemblies that convert microwave signals to another frequency range for further processing. Generally, they are designed to produce an output signal frequency for a particular frequency band.
RFID Chips, or radio frequency identification chips use radio signals to transmit data over short distances. They are typically used for security, tracking and identification applications. RFID Chips can be paired with other circuitry to create a RFID tag or reader.
WiFi wireless chips and WiMAX wireless chips are used in fixed broadband wireless access networks that use point-to-multipoint architecture.
xDSL chips provide digital subscriber line (DSL) connectivity in a system-on-chip platform. The term xDSL refers collectively to all types of digital subscriber lines.
ZigBee® chips are cost-effective, standards-based, wireless networking chips that provide low data-rates, low-power consumption, security, and reliability.
