Silicon IP – ShortLink Radio IP

ShortLink offers a number of RF transceiver IPs that have been successfully used in many ASIC projects and are silicon proven across several process nodes. The radio IPs have varying feature sets. A sample of available features for some of the transceivers are listed below. Please contact us for further information regarding your specific needs. Sub-blocks such as transmitter, receiver, PLL, frontend can be licensed separately if desired.
