Sirific Wireless Limited is introducing its EM3200 multi-band HSDPA / WEDGE radio evaluation module. The EM3200 is the smallest multi-band HSDPA / WEDGE radio evaluation module for 3.5G mobile applications currently available. It incorporates a complete tri-band WCDMA (bands I, II and V), quad-band GSM / EDGE radio subsystem, which is designed around Sirific's SW3200 single-chip CMOS RF transceiver.
This compact multi-band radio module incorporates fewer than 130 components in a board area of less than 7.0 cm2.
Central to the EM3200 radio evaluation module is Sirific's SW3200 HSDPA / WEDGE RF transceiver, a featured product in Sirific's Nexus III family of 3.5G single-chip CMOS RF transceivers.
This highly integrated multi-band RF transceiver chip supports transmit and receive operation in all four EDGE, GPRS, and GSM bands, as well as five WCDMA bands (I, II, III, IV and V) with HSDPA downlink data rates up to 10.2 Mbps.
It also interfaces directly to WEDGE baseband processors by means of an integrated 2.5G DigRF-compliant digital baseband interface and an analog baseband interface.
The EM3200 kit, which includes radio module hardware, documentation and technical support, is available now to mobile handset designers at a price of US$950.
