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.
