Quick Company Facts
InnoPhase is a fabless semiconductor company that develops innovative and efficient RF architectures using CMOS technology. Building on our previous experience with WLAN IoT products, we have now turned our attention to Cellular Networks.
(Wi-Fi products are now part of InnoPhase IOT.)
Our products focus on cellular network radio equipment ranging from 2G/3G/4G/5G small cells to macro cells. Key markets include In-Building Wireless, Private Networks and Enterprise Applications in addition to MNO Deployments.
We believe our technology can provide significant efficiency improvements to any size network cells.
Initial product announcements are coming soon – devices are in fab now. Plans include a new SoC announcement plus details about a supporting radio development kit.
The patented “Digital-to-RF” architecture is completely unique and only available from our company. This design approach gives us the ability to implement RF transceivers in standard CMOS much like typical digital blocks.
We migrate to more advanced CMOS process technology nodes at a much faster rate than competitors, allowing the opportunity for more integration and higher efficiencies.
