To provide strong WLAN signals available for consumers seeking to connect everywhere, using smartphones, tablets, wearables and small Internet of Things (IoT) devices, NXP Semiconductors has announced new wireless local area network (WLAN) Low Noise Amplifiers (LNA) with Integrated Switch.
The company’s WLAN LNA+Switch family offers enhanced WLAN connectivity to help ensure the strongest signal available for consumers who want to be connected all the time, everywhere.
“More transactions are occurring via mobile devices than ever before in smart environments and the IoT, which is driving the need for stronger, higher performance wireless LAN reception as demand continues to grow,” said Chris Kelly, senior marketing director at NXP. “NXP continues to innovate in the mobile market, and our new family of devices is an attractive WLAN alternative that allows manufacturers to offer more desirable mobile device performance to meet the needs of today’s consumer.”
NXP stated that the new devices use higher throughput standards to enhance receive sensitivity for WLAN applications, including the latest 802.11ac 1Gb/s standard. The firm added that the devices leveraging SiGe:C technology couple best-in-class noise figure, linearity and efficiency, and low insertion loss CMOS switches with the process stability and ruggedness that are the hallmarks of SiGe technology.
NXP’s WLAN LNA+Switches family that comprises BGS8324, BGS8358, BGS8424 and BGS8458 is available on reference designs from leading Mobile WLAN System on a Chip (SoC) suppliers.
