Unlike competing technologies, RF-MEMS-based devices can reduce space and cost while simultaneously achieving a combination of tunability and low insertion loss that that is simply unachievable with conventional silicon technology. MEMS-based RF components can improve performance reduce power consumption, considerably, decrease TTM (time-to-market) while lowering overall cost, all critical factors in consumer devices.
RF-MEMS also holds the key to producing programmable RF products that will simplify the design of fifth generation mobile devices. By using an innovative approach WiSpry has created digital software-controllable (tunable) MEMS based RF-capacitor network products with extremely low insertion loss combined with high linearity. These innovative products are ideally suited for use in the 5G based solutions that represent the future of the wireless device market.
WiSpry’s unique manufacturing process allows for increased integration by building its RF-MEMS devices on active CMOS silicon structures. This provides a roadmap path from discrete RF-capacitors all the way to a fully integrated and monolithic true single-chip transceiver. All of this is performed using a standard CMOS process in a standard CMOS process flow.
WiSpry’s innovative RF-MEMS products will enable system designers to achieve the architectural innovation required to meet the design challenges posed by the ever expanding range of standards and frequencies used in global wireless networks. Using a standard CMOS process, enables WiSpry to offer this exceptional innovation at the ROI/ cost-points necessary for high-volume adoption in mobile wireless applications.
