Global System for Mobile Communications
Axiom Microdevices Inc. announces that its AX502 CMOS device successfully completed full type approval (FTA) testing. FTA is a mandatory verification process used to ensure compliance with the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) specification. During this lengthy testing process, the cellular handset and the AX502 PA were subjected to the tests required to declare that the AX502 CMOS PA, designed into a cellular handset, was 100% compliant to GSM specifications and performance requirements. The AX502 integrates full quad-band GSM/GPRS PA function on a single integrated circuit (IC) using mainstream silicon CMOS process technology.
