Richardson RFPD strengthens RF offering with Mobix True5G
A global distribution agreement between Richardson RFPD and fabless RF component company, Mobix, brings the latter’s True5G to the distributor’s portfolio.
Under the terms of the agreement, Richardson RFPD will represent Mobix Labs’ high performance, compact, highly integrated CMOS-based products, including the company’s beamformers, antenna solutions and analogue/RF semiconductors.
“With Richardson RFPD, we’re able to deliver our True5G wireless solution to customers around the globe, enabling them to easily unlock the full capabilities of the 5G mmWave spectrum, accelerating their time to market,” said Fabian Battaglia, CEO of Mobix Labs.
Mobix Labs’ scalable True5G technology provides “unprecedented” levels of integration, says the company. It can be used in small cells and base stations, industrial IoT and medical devices, and consumer products and handsets.
The CMOS-based technology includes a portfolio of single SKUs (stock keeping units) with advantages in performance, efficiency, cost, size, and time to market, says Mobix.
Rafael R Salmi, president of Richardson RFPD, commented. “Their proprietary design and small form-factor addresses the complexities surrounding the higher frequencies that true 5G demands, enabling rapid deployment of mmWave 5G networks.”
Mobix Labs is based in Irvine, California. The fabless semiconductor company is focused on developing RF (radio frequency) solutions necessary for simplifying the design of next generation 5G wireless products and beyond. The company manufactures compact, fully integrated, single chip, single die, CMOS-based mmWave beamformers, antennae and RF semiconductors.
