    The NanoAmp is a quad-band CMOS GSM/GPRS System-on-a-Chip transceiver IP core targeting GSM850/EGSM900 and DCS1800/PCS1900 GSM/GPRS voice and data applications based on single-chip fully integrated radio solutions. Targeted for monolithic integration with high-value baseband processor cores 160 nm mixed-signal CMOS processes, the NS3121 integrates a Class 12 GSM/GPRS transceiver and DigRF interface to enable a low-cost single-chip total radio solution. By employing an innovative and unique CMOS architecture, the NS3121 delivers superior performance while achieving power requirements far less than similar SiGe or BiCMOS transceiver solutions, thereby extending battery-life. Full integration of the transmitter, receiver, and synthesizer with the baseband eliminates to 50 external components, minimizing board area, cost, factory test-time, and design-in time. The transmitter section is based on a direct-launch architecture optimized for superior GSM and GPRS performance while eliminating the need for expensive and area-consuming TX SAW filters. A fully integrated TX modulator and power ramp control coupled with programmable TX gain settings ensure optimized efficiency and compatibility with a broad class of PA FEM solutions. With fully integrated quad-band LNAs, the receiver line-up employs a low-IF architecture to eliminate acute issues associated with zero-IF receivers. Programmable channelselect filtering enables signal quality and RX sensitivity optimization. The NS3121 core also features a synthesizer that accepts ARFCN words to set TX and RX frequencies directly from the baseband core, eliminating the need for complex baseband programming found in other SoC transceiver solutions. Polar TX is available as an option. The NS3121 IP core is optimized to integrate directly with high-value GSM/GPRS baseband cores. By fully integrating all transceiver and baseband functions on one die, the NS3121 provides lower eBOM costs, reduced board area, and increased battery-life in a low-cost SoC form-factor.
