RF Transceiver Chip Market – Introduction

RF transceiver is a small electronic device that is used to transmit and receive radio frequency signals. RF transceiver module is integrated on chip to offer simple system design, reduced cost, and high performance for short range wireless systems, such as long-term evolution (LTE), 3G/4G wireless, and universal mobile telecommunications service (UMTS). In wireless communication system, RF transceiver is positioned in between base band modem and power amplifier/low noise amplifier to receive a modulated signal and send it to power amplifier to transfer the signal over a long distance. RF transceiver chip is used in RF transceiver module for transferring data with high speed. RF transceiver chips are used in smartphones, wireless alarm and security systems, home and building automation and multiple other applications owing to its low power consumption, small size, and high speed operation feature.
