Arasan Chip Systems is first to unveil MIPI RFFE core
The Arasan MIPI RFFE Solution provides everything required for integrating RFFE solutions – IP core, Verification IP, software drivers and hardware development platform. The IP core includes RMM-compliant synthesizable, OVM verified RTL. The IP core provides enhanced programmable features for minimizing application complexity and pre/post message processing. The solution can be easily integrated into any design project and customized for a native interface or bridging function. A Verification IP for RFFE is also available to accelerate verification and testing of your system. Software drivers are readily available in Linux and can be ported to a variety of different OS platforms.
The Radio Frequency Front End (RFFE) was developed by the MIPI standards committee as a means of controlling multiple transceiver systems. RFFE was developed as a standard control for front-end elements of radios such as power amplifiers, low-noise amplifiers, switches, sensors and antenna tuners.
RFFE uses a two-wire, serial interface connecting radio terminal to front-end modules. The standard defines all the electrical characteristics and protocol requirements for communication among the Masters and Slaves on the bus. The RFFE includes a hardware development kit and software drivers. The products seamlessly integrate to offer a "Total IP Solution" to implementing an REEF MIPI solution.
The Arasan RFFE IP solutions, including IP core, VIP, software drivers and hardware development kit is available immediately for licensing.
