ON Semiconductor is launching a new family of tunable RF components (TRFC) that enable smaller volume antennas reduced power consumption and support increasing mobile data demands of smartphones. Also being introduced is a PTIC Control IC.
ON Semiconductor's new TCP-30xx family of low insertion loss Passive Tunable Integrated Circuits (PTICs) and TCC-103 PTIC Controller IC allow performance to be tuned and optimized to counter lower antenna volume and increased frequency coverage requirements. On Semi also help overcome head- and hand-effect problems.
With a 4:1 tuning range and capacitance values from 1.2 picofarad (pF) to 8.2 pF, the TCP-30xx PTIC series is offered in WLCSP and QFN package styles and can be used to replace traditional "fixed-match" devices.
The PTICs are offered in WLCSP and QFN packages and are priced at $0.50 (USD) in quantities greater than 250,000 units.
