Share Article

NanoAmp is now ready to ship its NX3111, a single-chip CMOS quad-band RF transceiver offering GSM/GPRS capability with a DigRF interface, featuring the lowest Rx active current consumption of 75mA.

NanoAmp Solutions, Inc., a pioneer in low power CMOS radio frequency (RF) solutions, announced today that its NX3111 RF transceiver is now ready for volume production.

Targeting GSM850/EGSM900 and DCS1800/PCS1900 GSM/GPRS mobile voice and data applications, the NX3111 integrates a CMOS Class 12 GSM/GPRS transceiver with a DigRF interface to enable a flexible mobile platform solution with any DigRF compliant baseband. The platform solution offers a simple DigRF control solution with extremely low power consumption and low noise figure (2.5 dB typical) for excellent sensitivity on the quad band receiver.

With the end-customer in mind, NanoAmp recognizes the advantages of integrating our transceivers directly into handset reference designs and has worked closely with cellular baseband partners to develop proven and faster time-to-market mobile platform solutions while maintaining our signature significant savings in power consumption, cost, and size.

About the NX3111:
The NX3111 is a single-chip CMOS quad-band RF transceiver offering GSM/GPRS capability with a DigRF interface. The NX3111 expands on NanoAmp's existing NX3110 analog GSM/GPRS product. Featuring an Ultra-Low-Power (ULP) down-converter, the NX3111 delivers receive current of 75mA which significantly extends battery life and increases talk-time by more than 10 percent in GSM mode. The NX3111 is available in a space saving, cost effective 6mm x 6mm QFN ROHS-compliant TQFN package.

NX3111 Features:

  • 2.7V to 3.6V Single Supply
  • Direct Conversion and Low-IF Receiver
  • Linear Transmitter
  • Full Muti-Mode Block and Stream Support
  • Fully Integrated VCO and Loop Filter
  • Full DigRF V1.12 Interface Compliance
  • Temperature Range: -30o to +85oC

For Baseband Customers:
NanoAmp will enable and support our baseband customers in developing single-chip (baseband+RF) solutions for 2G, 2.5G, 3.5G and LTE with standard CMOS technology for the mobile phone market. The NanoAmp CMOS DigRF transceiver architecture enables highly integrated, low cost single die or system-in-package (SiP) solutions without sacrificing radio performance. NanoAmp's transceiver technology supports GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA (including HSDPA/HSUPA), TD-SCDMA (including HSDPA/HSUPA) and LTE.
