What is a Transceiver IC?

A transceiver is a device that contains a transmitter and a receiver which are both combined and share common circuitry. Transceivers combine a significant amount of the transmitter and receiver handling circuitry. An RF Transceiver utilizes RF modules for high speed data transmission. The objective in the design of transceivers is to bring digital domain closer to the antenna at the receiving and transmitting ends using software defined radio. Software-programmable digital processors used in circuits allow conversion between digital base band signals and analog RF signals. Transceivers are most frequently used to describe the component in LANs that actually applies signals to the network wire and at the same time detects signals passing through the wire. Several LANs have the transceiver built into the network interface card. In radio communications, a transceiver is a two-way radio that combines a radio transmitter and a radio receiver exchanging information in half-duplex mode. Integrated circuits (ICs) allow high performance circuits to be built at lesser costs and with significant amounts of space savings.

Types of Transceiver ICs

There are several different kinds of transceiver ICs. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by supply voltage, frequency range, data rate, sensitivity, packaging type and output power. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for output power are 10 dBm, 13 dBm and 15 dBm. We also carry transceiver ICs with output power up to 36 dBm. Frequncy can range from 30 kHz to 2.48 GHz, with the most common sizes being 300 to 930 MHz, 902 to 928 MHz and 2.4 GHz.

Applications for Transceiver ICs:

Transceivers are called Medium Attachment Units (MAUs) in IEEE 802.3 documents and are used in 10BASE2 and 10BASE5 Ethernet networks. Fiber-optic gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet use transceivers known as GBIC, SFP, SFP+, XAUI and XFP. Transceiver ICs can be found in communications circuits including Ethernet applications, 1x Fiber Channel, high-speed storage devices, local area networks, storage area networks, network bridges, routers and hubs, router/ server interfaces, distributed multi-processing, switch-to-switch interface and high-speed input/output for file servers, SONET/ SDH networks, metro access rings and point-to-point channel.

Choosing the Right Transceiver IC:

When you are looking for the right transceiver ICs, you can filter the results by various attributes with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search: by Output Power (-81 dBm, 10 dBm, 13 dBm, …), Supply Voltage (0.3 V to 5.5 V) and Frequency Range (from 30 kHz to 2.48 GHz) to name a few. You will be able to find the right transceiver ICs that can be used for a wireless transceiver IC, RF transmitter and receiver IC, Bluetooth transceiver IC, wifi transceiver module, rfid transceiver, microwave transceiver, usb wireless transceiver, long range RF transceiver, radio transceiver IC or any other transceiver module or circuit.

Transceiver ICs in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of transceiver ICs required is less than a full reel, we offer to customers many of our programmable transceiver IC products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
