Two-way-radio processor boasts a high level of flexibility

The CMX7031 processor IC is being touted as a one-for-all radio chip, providing a comprehensive feature-set and a roadmap of function enhancements available through CML's FirmASIC component technology. The key to the CMX7031 is its flexibility. Adoption of the CMX7031 on a manufacturer’s radio platform enables multi-standard radios to be conceived in a single design. Professional and leisure two-way radios are all target applications within the capabilities of the CMX7031.

The specific functions of the CMX7031 device are determined by uploading its Function Image during device initialization. A Function Image can be later provided to supplement and enhance device functions, expanding or modifying end-product features without the need for expensive and time-consuming design changes. The benefit is a significant reduction in time-to-market along with commercial advantages over custom or structured ASIC, FPGA, and DSP solutions.

Fully functional in the range 3.0 to 3.6 V, the CMX7031 is available as a 64-pin LQFP or VQFN package. More information is available at www.cmlmicro.com/Products/TwoWay/CMX7031.htm.
