UbiNetics and Renesas Technology Corp. have signed an agreement for the development of the first RF (radio frequency) solution capable of supporting W-CDMA and HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) in the frequency bands used in Japan, Europe, and the US. HSDPA is the high-speed data transmission system which accelerated W-CDMA. Its system realizes 14.2-Mbps maximum high-data transmission speed. The announcement marks the second time the companies have partnered for joint RF solution development.
The new RF solution, will be a complete dual-mode RF sub-system comprising RFIC, power amplifier, SAW duplexer and DC/DC converter. It will support WCDMA and HSDPA operation in the 800MHz, 1900MHz and 2100MHz bands used in Europe, the US and Japan and is designed to be used with Renesas’s quad-band (850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz) GSM/GPRS/EDGE solutions for dual-mode applications.
