RFaxis Debuts WLAN Power Amplifier

Irvine-based semiconductor developer RFaxis said today that it has begun mass production on a new, power amplifier (PA) aimed at the wireless local area network market. RFAxis said its RX240 high power 2.4GHz PA is aimed at use in wireless access point, routers, set-top boxes, home gateways, wireless hot spots, and other applications. RFaxis develops CMOS-based semiconductors, which have a price advantage over existing power amplifiers using more exotic semiconductor technology such as Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) and Silicon Germanium (SiGe). RFaxis is headed by Mike Neshat, and is one of the few, semiconductor startups to successfully emerge out of the region in recent years.
