TI Intros 5-in-1 Wireless Combo Chip

Texas Instruments introduced its WiLink 8.0 -- integrating up to five different radio -- for smartphones, tablets, eBooks, ultrathin computing devices and other feature-rich mobile products.

The new family of 45-nanometer single-chip solutions offers mobile Wi-Fi, GNSS, NFC, Bluetooth and FM transmit/receive capabilities. TI said its WiLink 8.0 architecture supports various combinations of these technologies, allowing for customized solutions to address the unique needs and price points of all mobile markets. Each chip variant comes in a compact WSP package that can be mounted directly on a PCB, and includes all required RF front ends, a complete power management system, and comprehensive coexistence mechanisms. The result is that the five-radio WiLink 8.0 chip offers a 60 percent cost reduction, 45 percent decrease in size and 30 percent lower power consumption compared to traditional multi-chip offerings.
