Qualinx is the wireless radio company with its main focus on radios for portable devices in the Internet-of-Things applications.
Founded in 2015 as a spin out of the well-known Technical University of Delft (TU Delft), Qualinx commercializes the innovative and tested Digital/Discrete-Time RF (DRF) technology for different ultra-low-power radio products. The main idea of the DRF technology is digital and digital-like implementation of RF/Analog blocks by new circuit, system, and architectural innovations. This enables full integration of high quality radios in CMOS with the lowest power consumption and a small die size.
With this capability, Qualinx is addressing the need for radio solutions with long battery life, driven by the portable IoT, wearable, and mobile applications in volume production. Qualinx DRF technology suits well for Bluetooth, ZigBee, Thread, GNSS, and other IoT standards demoing an ultra-low-power consumption. With investment of European funding and support of TU Delft, extensive developments have already been done to offer CMOS radios and their related IPs.
