Wireless Modem Chips Market: Introduction

  • Wireless modems are available in different speeds, different bandwidths, and types. Wireless modems are often divided into two types: transparent and smart. They transmit information modulated at the carrier frequency so that many radio communication links can operate simultaneously or at different radio frequencies.
  • Wireless modems transmit modulated data using electromagnetic waves. They are connected to a wireless network instead of to a telephone line. Unlike traditional analog modems and some types of network modems, these wireless devices provide very fast, always-on network connectivity. Users, typically, have access to the Internet up to 100 times faster than analog modems.
  • Unlike radio modems, wireless modems support non-serial communications such as Ethernet, GSM, and GPRS. Ethernet, a common protocol in local area networks (LANs), is similar to Global Systems for Mobile Communications (GSM) and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) in that all three technologies send data in network packets. Each packet contains information such as the sender's Internet Protocol (IP) address and the intended recipient's IP address.
  • Wireless modems are often used with laptop computers. This enables users to access network resources even if they move their portable PC to another location. Industrial value products can provide high speed connectivity via HSPA network or EVDO and provide internet access. Communication from High Speed ​​Package Access (HSDPA) networks and Evolution Data Optimized (EVDO) can be sent to ATMs, wireless cameras, and point-of-sale terminals.
  • Wireless modems use several different radio techniques and frequency bands.
    • 900 MHz is an unlicensed Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band and does not require FCC registration. It ranges from 902 to 928 MHz and has a maximum transmit power of 1W.
    • 2.4GHz is another unlicensed ISM band that does not require FCC registration. It ranges from 2.40000 to 2.4835 GHz and has a maximum transmit power of 1W. For 802.11b and 802.11g applications, choose a wireless modem from this range.
    • 5 GHz is in the 5.2-5.8 GHz range in North America. If your application is 802.11a, select your modem from this range.
  • Wireless modems that work in the 23 GHz, very high frequency (VHF), and ultra-high frequency (UHF) bands are also available
  • Modems were originally utilized to send faxes and connect users to the Internet, but most modems in use presently are employed by companies for various applications. These applications contain point-of-sale, data transfer, remote management, broadband backup, and machine-to-machine solutions. Most of these solutions are hidden at the back end; however, they make everyday life easier. Below are examples of these uses.
  • PoS (Point of Sale) is one of the most heavily used applications by the everyday consumer. When we pay with a debit card or credit card, there is a modem (broadband or dial-up) behind it that you can send this data to quickly return denials or approvals and use a dial-up solution at a lower cost.
    • Credit Card Payment Terminal in restaurants, movie theaters, or retail stores
    • Ticketing machines in trains stations, bus stations, and airports
    • Pre-pay gas pumps
    • ATM cash machines
  • Machine to Machine (M2M) solutions normally have a communications link connecting two machines (computers, electronic devices) that are capable of transferring data on demand between the two machines without any human interaction required. Examples of M2M are:
    • Medical devices transferring test results to a computer at a doctor's office
  • There are many other applications that use modems for diverse functions; most include the use of the dial-back and remote management features. Examples of other applications are:
    • Cell phone tower maintenance on circuits
    • Gasoline vapor containment system
    • Home security monitoring - A modem is used to send a voice message to a telephone/mobile when an alarm is set off
  • Modem chips are high performance microcontroller, which supports the best performance for high performance computing. Meanwhile, this modem chip's chipset can be used for pc computer. In parallel modem chipset, the PIR IC control circuit adopts the single chip microcomputer control chip. The IC controller can detect and adjust the brightness to slow down the child's first in-ball. Modem chip, FM radio, and new generation of advanced single chip high power chips. It can be used for modem chip of the same board, BGA pads. A modem chip that can be reset and used with other products supports high performance and reduces power consumption.
