AMICCOM announced A7125, The High Performance, Low Cost 2.4GHz / 2 Mbps Transceiver IC.
- 2008/8/15
AMIC Communication Corporation(AMICCOM) locates in the Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan . In Aug. 2008, AMICCOM announced A7125 in volume production officially; a 2 Mbps data rate and high performance 2.4GHz transceiver IC that ideal transmission distance is within 50 meters. A7125, that AMICCOM announces today, is an ultra low power wireless FSK transceiver with working frequency 2400~2483 MHz ISM band. Users just need to set up one register to change working frequency. Integrating the design of Multi Channels (~40) and Clear Channel Indication, frequency hopping is easy to implement. The control interface of A7125 is SPI, through SPI, it is easy to program TX power, Read/Write FIFO, access 8-bit Digital RSSI, data rate and etc. A7125’s unique Strobe Command is used to control A7125 built-in State Machine, users just need to send single command via SPI for packet transmission. A7125 has embedded LDO, its operating range is from 2.0V to 3.6V, TX power could be set from -10 dBm to 3 dBm with high Rx sensitivity -90 dBm. If data rate is programmed to only 1 Mbps, the Rx sensitivity could be lower than – 92dBm. In addition, AMICCOM could support reference design of A7125+External PA (20 dBm/10 dBm) for longer distance applications. A7125 has not only features of self-calibration mechanism, but also supports operation options of Auto RSSI Measurement, Data Whitening, Packet Correction (FEC and CRC), high precision clock output for MCU crystal sharing, FIFO mode and Direct Mode. A7125 has no SAW filter and Balun required for module design but only few external passive components needed. Users can also consider A7125 built-in thermal sensor, battery detector and 8-bits ADC for flexible applications.

A7125 is the best choice of short range wireless data/audio/video streaming. Based on 2 Mbps data rate plus lower power architecture, A7125 is very tie-in with Baby Monitor, Wireless Earphone/Speaker, Wireless Mice/ Keyboard, Home Security, RF remote control, Game Pad and Toys.

From market segment point of view, A7125’s RX sensitivity is better than commercial ones. This chip not only combines advantages with other competitor’s 2.4 GHz RF ICs, but also supports 4 kinds of low cost crystals (6M/8/12M/16M). Based on its unique cost structure, A7125 could be the best choice for huge wireless applications in high performance, low power consumption and low cost targets.
