SoC White Box IPs

Bluetooth Dual Mode v4.2 RF Transceiver IP

This RF transceiver IP is the design data base of a Bluetooth Dual Mode RF Transceiver extracted from a 40nm production chip. It consists of a complete radio front-end integrating Basic Rate (BR), Enhanced Data Rate (EDR), Low Energy (LE) features fully compliant with the Bluetooth 4.2 specification. This RF is also co-existence proven and matured with WLAN and cellular. A special LPO for the high Sleep Clock Accuracy (SCA) is also integrated for the low power Bluetooth (BLE) applications.
