DALLAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 23, 2010 — RF Monolithics, Inc. (NASDAQ: RFMI) (“RFM” or “the Company”) announces that RF design expert Bob Nelson, RFM field applications engineer, will be conducting live hands-on demonstrations of the RFM RFIC Design Assistant software in the company’s upcoming exhibit at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) 2010 in Silicon Valley April 26 – 29, 2010.
ESC attendees will be able to obtain hands-on experience of the RFIC Design Assistant in RFM’s ESC Silicon Valley booth #940. The demonstration will show how design engineers can utilize the Design Assistant to rapidly prototype RF connections in their OEM products using RFM RFIC short-range radio transceivers.
Larry Miller, RFM Director of Marketing-Short Range Radios, said, “RFM continually looks for methods and tools to afford our customers a better design-in experience and faster time to market. We fully understand that as an OEM provider, the sooner our customers can move their designs into the production phase, the sooner we generate revenue.”
The RFM RFIC Design Assistant software enables design engineers to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the RFIC through a selection of:
With the Design Assistant, design engineers can quickly set-up and configure the development kit via RS-232 or USB. This allows access to all of the RFIC registers as well as the ability to save the register settings, dramatically shortening the design cycle. The Design Assistant configurations can be saved and reloaded for future reference including the default setting used for the internal range tests.
Using the RFIC Design Assistant, engineers can perform RF tests such as power output measurements and receiver sensitivity with different register settings, including the low power setting to see how it affects overall RFIC current consumption. This can be done with the Design Assistant configured for their specific application, which shortens the time it takes to get the product to market.
RFM will also be conducting daily drawings for the opportunity to win a module or short-range radio developer kit from among its broad selection of developer products.
