Silicon Laboratories announces the Aero I GSM/GPRS transceiver. The Aero I is based on RF CMOS technology, and is suited for small GSM/GPRS handsets and modules where small board space is required. The transceiver allows a triple band radio, excluding the power amplifier and switch, to be implemented in 1.2 sq. cm using 15 total discrete components including SAW filters. The Aero I integrates sensitive components including all RF and IF VCOs, loop filters, clock coupling capacitors, and VCO tuning components. The Aero I transceiver uses a software programmable universal baseband interface allowing handset designers to implement the Aero transceiver with all leading basebands.
