Newport Media Introduces World’s Smallest, Lowest Power 802.11n Wi-Fi SoC

Newport Media’s NMC1000 Connectivity SoC addresses the rapidly growing global smartphone market

LAKE FOREST, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 11, 2012Newport Media, an innovative fabless communications semiconductor company supplying products to the broadcast media industry, today announced its first system-on-chip (SoC) product to address the wireless connectivity market.

The NMC1000 is a Wi-Fi® SoC that includes all RF and Baseband circuitry required to provide IEEE 802.11b, g, n-compliant operation including all necessary power amplifiers and switches. By leveraging Newport Media’s advanced OFDM baseband and RF CMOS technology, the NMC1000 offers levels of performance, power consumption, and external bill of material (BOM) typically associated with the world’s leading connectivity solutions providers.

“As smartphones replace feature phones as the norm in wireless markets throughout the globe, there will be great demand for connectivity solutions that provide dramatically lower bill of material costs without compromises in performance,” said Mohy Abdelgany, president and chief executive officer for Newport Media. “Newport Media has a well-established track record of supplying best-in-class OFDM SoC solutions into highly price-competitive markets and looks forward to expanding its connectivity offering to address this dynamic and rapidly growing market.”

The NMC1000 is available in 40-pin, 5mm X 5mm quad flat no-lead (QFN) and 2.5mm x 2.5mm chip scale packages, requiring the industry’s smallest external BOM.

Engineering samples will be available next month with volume production scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of 2012.
