AMICCOM announced A7328, The Ultra Low Power, Low Cost Sub 1GHz / 2Mbps Transmitter IC
- 2011/1/18
AMICCOM Electronics Corporation (AMICCOM) who focuses on RF ICs by CMOS technology is located in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan. In Jan. 2011, AMICCOM officially announced one-way, low cost, high data rate FSK/GFSK transmitter. Its name is A7328 with programmable data rate 2K ~ 2 Mbps. This device can operate in 433/868/915 MHz of ISM band. It can be driven easily by a low cost MCU via SPI interface for all radio control modes as well as internal 64 Bytes TXFIFO.

The key advantage of A7328 is unique, low cost, high speed RF transmitter. A7328 can be paired to AMICCOM A7102 or A7128 TRX. Such one way solution offers customers to design a low cost and high performance application. A7328 is suitable for many applications such as wireless era-phone, wireless speaker, baby monitor, home security, remote controller, wireless video / audio streaming and wireless toy. AMICCOM can also provide customers a completed reference design with few external components. Such reference design is compliant with FCC part 15.247 and ETSI EN300-220. User has no need to spend much time to fine tune RF performance but reduce design complexity.

For RF performance, A7328 has built-in programmable PA up to 10dBm. Combined with A7102 or A7128 as a RX, the LOS (Light-Of-Sight) range is easy to break through 200 meters without the external PA. The internal 8-bit ADC can support to measures related temperature and enable batter detection. The unique VCO calibration mechanism inside A7328 can deal with CMOS process vibration to support stable operation in different environmental conditions.

For data stream, A7328 supports pocket encryption, Manchester encode, pocket error correction (FEC and CRC). For power management, it supports Deep sleep mode, Sleep mode and Idle mode. Overall, A7328 is very easy-to-use by a low cost MCU to simplify system development and cost.

Order and package
A7328 is in 4 mm x 4 mm QFN-16 package. Some customers have approved A7328 in the second half of 2010. Now, A7328 is kept shipping to customers. AMICCOM and our authorized distributors are welcome you to request IC samples and evaluation modules. For more details, please contact with
