At the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. presented its unique and highly integrated portable equipment and communications solutions for mobile platforms. Maxim will host nine interactive demo kiosks with solutions for consumer and RF/communications applications. All Maxim mobility products feature high integration for better performance and substantial savings in space, cost, and design time. Some of the products demonstrated at Hall 6, Stand 6G100 include:
• The MAXQ614, a low-power MAXQ® 16-bit microcontroller with infrared (IR) module, is designed for very small applications such as smartphones and tablets. Available in a tiny 2mm × 2mm × 0.65mm, 25-ball wafer-level package (WLP), it shrinks solution size by 70% compared to previous solutions. The MAXQ614 includes 80KB of flash memory and 2KB of data SRAM for applications flexibility. It provides the industry’s best low-power battery-operated performance with an ultra-low-power stop mode (0.2 µA typ).
• The MAX98096 is a highly integrated, high-performance, smart audio hub. It integrates Maxim’s FlexSound® processor, which supports a plug-in-capable audio framework. With low power consumption and advanced audio signal processing, this single-chip audio solution supports wideband voice, including noise cancellation and echo suppression, in a wide range of portable applications.
• Maxim addresses another key piece of the mobile system with its new MEMS motion sensor, the MAX21000. The device is an ultra-accurate, 3-axis, digital-output gyroscope that delivers unprecedented sensitivity over temperature and time. It offers low noise, high bandwidth, and a high-speed interface and is suitable for both user interface (UI) and optical image stabilization (OIS) applications.
• The MAX2580* is a highly integrated LTE/3G small cell RF transceiver that supports all major cellular bands. (*Future product – contact factory for availability.)
