Wireless Connectivity


The main focus in the development of electronics for wireless connectivity and consumer applications is to ensure that the total solution is competitive from a cost point of view!
Low power and adequate performance is of course a must for consumer products, but cost is the most important priority to to be successful in this domain and keep up with constant price pressure.

Over the years Catena has developed wireless connectivity solutions for various consumer applications, e.g. FM/AM and Digital Radio Broadcast Transceivers, GNSS Receivers, Bluetooth, BLE, Zigbee, WiFi and other wireless connectivity standards. Our solutions have been produced in the tens of millions with impressive yields and thereby been part of our customers’ success in booming consumer segments such as cell phones.

At Catena we are constantly implementing innovative circuit designs for smaller die areas, as well as integrating external components for a reduced BOM. We use cost competitive standard CMOS technologies and work closely with production test departments to ensure that our designs can be produced with excellent yields and short production test time.
