WiSpry, Inc. recently announced its product family of MEMS tunable digital capacitors. These products integrate low-power CMOS control and voltage generation logic with an array of tunable RF-MEMS digital capacitors to provide customers with an ultra linear, digitally programmable, variable capacitance solution on a single silicon die. To potential customers, end products using WiSpry’s tunable digital capacitors will enable mobile wireless devices to implement digitally programmable matching, filtering and other critical RF functions in wireless front-end systems. The company’s programmable tuning enables substantial improvements in power efficiency, potential for adaptability to multiple functions and usage environments, superior sensitivity performance, and reductions in size and product cost. The unique digital programmability of the capacitors enables the utilization of a single solution across multiple product platforms and applications dramatically reducing product development costs, time and risk.
