NXP delivers smallest ULPI Hi-Speed USB transceivers for mobile phones
NXP Semiconductors today announced availability of its new generation UTMI+ Low-Pin Interface (ULPI) Hi-Speed USB transceivers, developed specifically for mobile phone designs. With the smallest transceiver in the family measuring in at 2.2 x 2.25 x 0.6 mm, in a 0.4 mm ball pitch, NXP’s transceiver solutions are the smallest in the market and address the specific needs of today’s ultra-slim handset designs and other sleek portable devices. In addition, as the actual USB usage in mobile phones is low compared to overall talk and standby time, NXP’s transceivers avoid battery drain by consuming only 0.5 µA in power-down mode.
NXP’s ISP1504x1, ISP1508 and ISP1702 devices are sampling now, with the first two products in mass production in March and April respectively.
