Our CTO, Ahmad Bahai, explains our breakthrough TI BAW resonator technology and how it paves the way for high-speed connectivity.
Every RF, mixed-signal and digital system needs a timing and clock subsystem to synchronize the generation and transportation of data. Data transfer rates in a wired network or on an FPGA board have risen from hundreds of megabits to hundreds of gigabits per second. Similarly, the data rate of wireless networks supported by communication standards such as Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® low energy have grown exponentially.
Historically, a quartz crystal resonator has been used as a reference for time and frequency in electronic systems. Quartz resonator frequencies range from a few kHz to a few MHz.
Our disruptive new TI bulk acoustic wave (BAW) technology offers a much cleaner clock reference for wired and wireless communication systems. Resonating at much higher frequency – about 2.4 GHz – it can provide a cleaner reference for a radio system or high-performance clock distribution.
