Qualinx team will participate in GLOBALFOUNDRIES Technology Conference (GTC) in Munich on October 11th. If you are interested to chat about Qualinx GNSS solution in GF 22nm FDSOI, please contact us.
Today, we are pleased to announce that RF/Analog Front-End of QLX300 is successfully tested. Signal path of this Ultra Low-Power GNSS SoC from antenna input to ADC outputs is fully functional while the Digital PLL generates precise clocks driving mixer, Discrete-Time filters, and the data converter. We are able to program and configure different parts of the frond-end through hundreds of registers controlled by an integrated ARM-Cortex processor. Our next step is full validation and characterization of QLX300.
We have already started testing and characterization of QLX300, a fully integrated lowest power GNSS SoC ever in GlobalFoundries 22nm FDX.
Qualinx recently passed it 1st major milestone: The Tape-Out of its Ultra-Low-Power GNSS Receiver, QLX300. The QLX300 with integrated LNA and PMU, is designed on a leading 22nm FD-SOI process. It uses Qualinx novel Digital-RF technology, resulting in state-of-the-art current consumption in all modes. The QLX300 is targeting the IoT market, especially the Wearables and Trackers.
Qualinx has received an R&D grant together with Nowi from the province of South Holland and the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands. The purpose is to introduce an extremely low-power battery-less positioning sensor capable of concurrently processing GPS/Galileo/Beido/GLONASS satellite signals powered by a Nowi’s power module.
