Fabless Semiconductor Startup OctoTech Inc. Introduces a New Innovative RF Product for BLE AoA / AoD Application
By: OctoTech Inc.
OctoTech is pleased to announce 8TR8241. This product is a single-die solution with an integrated RF front-end including PA, LNA, matching network, and includes antenna SP4T switch with an excellent switch isolation to address BLE Angle-of-Arrival (AoA)/Angle-
OctoTech CTO, Alex Gorbachov said, "By implementing our RF Front-end ICs in silicon, our customers realize higher performance at lower power consumption while enjoying
a significant cost savings. It is evident in our new product, 8TR8241. It continues to represent a paradigm shift in the RFIC marketplace, and the top players in wireless connectivity are aligning with us to pioneer the next advances using silicon RF."
OctoTech has achieved the same, or better performance as GaAs RFICs, using low-cost silicon process. Created to overcome limitations of existing solutions, OctoTech RFICs enable significantly lower current consumption, range extension, and performance enhancement for a broad range of popular standards including Bluetooth, Zigbee, LoRa, Sigfox, Thread, and many others. OctoTech's silicon RF ICs extend the usable life of battery used in Internet of Things (IoT) nodes and portable devices. Crafting our circuits in a silicon process allows for the integration of numerous devices including passives and supports the high-temp temperature operation, which is critical in applications such as LED lighting, Industrial, and Automotive.
OctoTech invites the RF Communications industry to visit our website, or contact our sales channels, to request OctoTech evaluation boards (EVB), data sheets, application notes, and product samples."
The cost advantages of implementing RFICs in silicon processes result from the combination of: lower wafer costs (Si compared to GaAs, or other III-V compound wafers), lower packaging costs (lead-frame based MSL1 packages, compared to laminate-based MCMs), die-count reduction (a single silicon die, versus multiple dice produced in different process technologies)
