IRVINE, CA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- WiSpry Inc., a leader in tunable radio frequency (RF) semiconductor products for the wireless industry and a MIPI Alliance contributor member, announced it will make all of its standard products compatible with the MIPI RFFE 1.0 standard. First products with the new serial interface are scheduled to reach key mobile phone OEMs for in-phone evaluation by Q2 2011.
The MIPI RFFE 1.0 standard is a serial bus targeting timing-critical control, such as band and mode selection in the RF front end of mobile phones and data devices. It is expected to be the backbone of future multi-standard, multi-band radios. Devices that can be controlled using the MIPI RFFE standard include RFICs DC/DC converters, power amplifiers, LNAs, filters, switch modules, antenna tuners, and sensors.
"As a MIPI Alliance contributor-level member, WiSpry has been active in the development of the RFFE 1.0 standard since its inception. Given how well the standard fits our targeted applications, we certainly want to feature it as the interface of choice for our products," said Jeff Hilbert, CEO of WiSpry. "Adopting the MIPI RFFE 1.0 standard will provide our customers with plug-and-play type interoperability, a reduced bus pin count, and increased interface bus data throughput, as well as advanced features that can be used to streamline the control of the entire front end."
