Globalpress Summit: WiSpry heading for handhelds

Globalpress Summit: WiSpry, the tunable RF specialist, is moving towards integrating a hand-set module - probably with a partner - WiSpry founder and president Jeff Hilbert, told the Summit. "Our roadmap leads us to having our own handset module," said Hilbert. Up to now the company has focused entirely on the front end, making dynamically programmable RF devices using integrated RF CMOS and RF MEMS. "Tunable front ends are the last missing piece in software defined radio," said Hilbert, "tunable RF improves connectivity, cost, connectivity, performance, size weight and component count." The ‘Thin is in’ trend in handsets is giving RF designers a headache. "Having screens taking the whole of the front of the phone is nice for users but a nightmare for RF designers," said Hilbert, "bearing in mind that touch-screens have a metal plate behind them, where do you put the anten...
