Maxim introduces the MAX2825/MAX2826/MAX2827 family of single-chip RF transceivers designed for 802.11a/g, 54Mb/s, OFDM radio applications. Manufactured using Maxim's SiGe BiCMOS process, these transceivers improve receiver sensitivity performance by 5 dB in 11g 54 Mb/s mode when compared to existing CMOS-based designs. This results in a 78% longer range for line-of-sight WLAN applications and 46% longer range for indoor applications. The MAX2825 is designed for single-band 2.4 GHz 802.11g; the MAX2826 is designed for single-band 5 GHz 802.11a and the MAX2827 for dual-band 802.11a/g applications.
