Jazz Semiconductor® announces at European Microwave Week (EuMW), the availability of its 0.18-micron silicon radio platform for complete radio integration. The 0.18- micron Jazz Silicon Radio platform allows complete integration of the radio in a wireless device on a single piece of silicon integrating the transceiver, antenna switch, power amplifier (PA) and controllers, eliminating the need for expensive discrete GaAs devices. Jazz's 0.18-micron RF CMOS process (CA18) and its 0.18-micron SiGe BiCMOS process (SBC18) include an SOI option that enables the integration of the antenna switch, but, unlike other solutions, also enables the integration of the power amplifier. This technology promises to deliver higher levels of integration for future cell phones, wireless LANs and WiMAX systems while displacing chips today built in more expensive GaAs and reducing die costs up to 50%.
