RF and Wireless

The range of wireless applications continues to expand, and many short and longer range wireless systems are being implemented into industrial and consumer products.  RF is also important for many sensing applications

  • Short range wireless transceivers at 900MHz and 2.4GHz 
  • Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (4.0)
  • Broad band and narrow band receiver design
  • IF and sub-carrier multiplexing
  • Spread-spectrum communications and techniques
  • Multiplex transceivers
  • Reflectometry in the optical and RF domains

The choice of wireless protocols is a critical design decision that needs to be taken early in a project. Modern protocols such as Bluetooth and Zigbee require specific hardware and significantly affect the microprocessor resources required. Also the verification and approval process is dependent on the protocol and performance requirements
