Texas Instruments Incorporated will be demo-ing its WiLink 8.0 product family — a collection of 45-nanometer single-chip solutions that integrate as many as five different radios – at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The solutions also are being sampled by “top-tier mobile OEMs,” TI adds.

Each chip variant comes in a compact WSP package that can be mounted directly on a PCB, and it includes all required RF front ends, a power-management system and coexistence mechanisms. At the system level, the five-radio WiLink 8.0 chip claims a 60-percent cost reduction, a 45-percent decrease in size and 30-percent lower power consumption.

The WiLink 8.0 family includes WL189x solutions, tailored for smartphones, tablets, ebooks, ultrathin computing devices and other feature-rich mobile products. It features integrated RF front ends for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. WiLink 8.0 solutions are paired and pre-tested with best-in-class Secure Element technologies from such companies as Infineon and NXP.
