RichardsonRFPD Webinar to Feature CTO Aaron Roof

Join CTO Aaron Roof and and partner RichardsonRFPD for a discussion on “How a 0.03-6 GHz SoM Will Reduce Radio Development Time by Months”. The event will be held on Wednesday, March 23m 2022. Register HERE for the webinar.


Radio development takes many months and usually includes the following stages: concept demo/system design, detail design, prototyping, software/algorithm development, final design and production.

The RF SoM lets you skip to the software/algorithm development stage of the design. The SoM design includes a RFFE, highly integrated transceiver and FPGA in a very small package and is flexible, high performance, and low enough in DC power to be used for most applications.

It will give your hardware team a huge head start and while your hardware team is transitioning to a final design, your software team can be working on their part of the design.

This webinar will provide details on the SoM and how it can reduce your development time.

Key Takeaways

  • Explore applications that would benefit from the use of high performance integrated RF transceiver ICs.
  • Learn how to increase the performance of a radio while reducing its size, DC power, and time-to-market.
  • Discover a complete development ecosystem that provides technical support and circuit customization
