WiSpry, Inc. Key Developments
WiSpry, Inc. Unveils WS1035
Jan 9 13
WiSpry, Inc. unveiled the WS1035, a new LTE-optimized tunable digital capacitor array (TDCA) that offers a 60% reduction in board space without compromising capability or coverage. The company is presenting the new tunable RF product at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, taking place January 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. WiSpry is located in South Hall 2, Booth 25321. MIPI(R) RFFE and SPI interface compatible, the WS1035 features seven bits of capacitance control with resolution of 100 fF within a single-chip wafer-level chip-scale (WLCSP) package. The WS1035 provides these features in a footprint that is 60% smaller, making it the premier solution for LTE and LTE-Advanced devices where size, performance and flexibility are paramount. The ultra-linear WS1035 supports stringent requirements for carrier aggregation and LTE-A applications on a global basis, and its interface is plug-and-play compatible with major smartphone chipsets and radio modems.
WiSpry, Inc. Announces World's Smallest Form Factor Antenna Tuning Developers' Kit for Lte Smartphones and Tablets
Oct 16 12
WiSpry, Inc. announced the world's first device-integrated Antenna Tuning Developers' Kit for smartphones and tablets together with SpryWare(TM) software for tuner optimization and control during the evaluation and development phase. Compared with traditional evaluation kits, the new solution has a miniature size enabling early evaluation inside a true form-factor smartphone or tablet product. The developer's kit also supports retrofits of existing products enabling quick determination of potential gains in antenna performance from tuning. As a result, the WiSpry solution is expected to speed the adoption of performance-enhancing, tunable RF solutions for faster, more adaptable LTE devices. WiSpry's new evaluation kit will greatly simplify and streamline the process of integrating antenna tuning capabilities into smartphones and tablets. Initially, the development kit will ship with the Company's popular WS2017 and WS2018 broadband tuner products. The single-chip WS2018 MIPI RFFE1.1 Antenna Tuner is currently the industry's highest-performance antenna tuner and sits in the RF signal chain between the antenna and the front-end module of a mobile phone. WiSpry will also offer the new development kit with the Company's third generation WS1033 optimized specifically for LTE applications. For LTE and LTE Advanced devices where size is a premium and high download speeds and reliable connections are a must, the WS1033 allows engineers to select the optimum circuit configuration for their antenna tuning requirements. Like every WiSpry product, the WS1033 is plug-and-play compatible with major Smartphone chipsets. The new kit will be extended to support all of WiSpry's next generation miniaturized tuners as they are introduced to the market. All WiSpry evaluation kits incorporate a WS2017/WS2018 or WS1033 board, a USB interface board, SpryWare(TM) software, simulation models, measured data and the required connectors and cables to ensure the fastest and easiest integration into mobile platforms. The SpryWare(TM) software and interface board provides control of devices both in MIPI RFFE 1.1 mode as well as multiple SPI modes. It also features advanced optimization algorithms and scripting enabling generation of optimal tuner settings for specific phone and antenna combinations.
WiSpry, Inc. Demonstrates Seven-Fold Extension of LTE Bandwidth in Smartphones
Aug 8 12
WiSpry, Inc. announced it has demonstrated that its WS1033 LTE Antenna Tuner has successfully extended usable bandwidth on an LTE smartphone from 25 MHz to 180 MHz without changing the production antenna. Using two identical, commercially available LTE phones, WiSpry modified one phone with the WS1033-based antenna tuning network and left the second phone unmodified. WiSpry showed that the phone modified with the WS1033 had far higher usable bandwidth of 180 MHz (700 MHz -- 880 MHz), compared to < 25 MHz for the unmodified phone. This marks the first time that off-the-shelf antennas in Smartphone form factors have achieved such a dramatic LTE bandwidth extension. According to the company this demonstration proves that 700 MHz LTE antennas that are tuned with its technology have excellent and constant radiation properties over an extremely wide bandwidth. The addition of the WS1033 extended the 700 MHz bandwidth more than seven times and enabled the company to cover band XII through Band V with no change to the antenna element. With the many different LTE bands in use, this enables the creation of a true global LTE phone that consumers will come to demand. The WiSpry WS1033 allows engineers to select the optimum circuit configuration for their antenna tuning requirements and features both a MIPI Alliance RFFE 1.1 interface and a 3/4-wire SPI interface, which makes it plug-and-play compatible with all major smartphone chipsets. Like every WiSpry product, the WS1033 provides the RF performance, lowest energy consumption and outstanding linearity to support LTE, SVLTE and carrier aggregation applications.
