Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX2550-MAX2553 femtocell transceivers for WCDMA (Bands 1 to 6 and 8 to 10) and cdma2000 (Band Class 0, 1, and 10). The transceivers reduce the number of external components, lower operation and maintenance costs, and facilitate more compact radio designs for modules and stand-alone femtocell applications. The devices have a high level of compatibility with market-leading baseband providers. A MAX-PHY digital interface eliminates the additional cost and space typically incurred with external data converters. Both transceivers are offered in 7mm x 7mm TQFN package, and they are rated over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
