The wireless team at XEMICS goes "RF made easy"
Neuchâtel, Switzerland, November 21st, 2000 - XEMICS SA has expanded its series of ultra-low power, wireless data communication transceivers. The company now includes transceivers that operate from only a few tens of kHz up to 900 MHz. XEMICS has designed a number of possible applications complete in hardware and software to ease the design integration of its wireless products. For OEMs this means an efficient and fast time-to-market capability. The software typically includes a variety of configured modes: point-to-point, and point-to-multipoint data communication as well as pseudo- full duplex modes for voice communication.
The RF IC series is supported by a group of development tools. These provide an immediate RF link, and totally do away with the need for the fine-tuning of RF Front-end designs. Featured within its range of development tools is the 1201CDK (complete development kit) .This offers the perfect RF + Microcontroller solution for engineers needing to develop a full RF data or voice transmission application. The 1201CDK enables a ready to go RF application thanks to the XM1201 module (RF module based on the XE1201 transceiver). This is ideal for applications in the fields of home automation, short range voice communication and automotive.
In parallel, XEMICS also develops integrated circuits that operate above 1 GHz. This in combination with their expertise in the area of ultra-low power technology, makes XEMICS a reliable partner for your upcoming RF designs, namely Bluetooth and Global Positioning System (GPS) solutions.
XEMICS, together with a leading name in the GPS industry, has produced the world's lowest power GPS solution.
In addition, they have already designed a wireless headset solution with a battery life expectancy 3-5 times longer than that of any of its market competitors. Talks are already in hand about the coming release of their fully integrated Bluetooth transceiver, which is being currently developed.
The XE1201 Complete Development Kit, Starter Kit and Evaluation Kits are all available through XEMICS' worldwide network of distributors (please consult our web site for a full list www.xemics.com or call our sales department).
