Maxim Integrated to Demonstrate a More Integrated World at Mobile World Congress

Maxim will showcase multiple differentiated and highly integrated portable equipment and communications solutions for mobile platforms.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - At the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) will showcase its unique and highly integrated portable equipment and communications solutions for mobile platforms. Maxim will host nine interactive demo kiosks with solutions for consumer and RF/communications applications. All Maxim mobility products feature high integration for better performance and substantial savings in space, cost, and design time. Some of the products demonstrated at Hall 6, Stand 6G100 include:

Consumer Applications

    -  The MAXQ614, a low-power MAXQ® 16-bit microcontroller with infrared

       (IR) module, is designed for very small applications such as smartphones

       and tablets. Available in a tiny 2mm x 2mm x .65mm, 25-ball wafer-level

       package (WLP), it shrinks solution size by 70% compared to previous

       solutions. The MAXQ614 includes 80KB of flash memory and 2KB of data

       SRAM for applications flexibility. It provides the industry's best

       low-power battery-operated performance with an ultra-low-power stop mode

       (0.2uA typ). In this mode, the minimum amount of circuitry is powered.

    -  The MAX98096 is a highly integrated, high-performance, smart audio hub.

       It integrates Maxim's FlexSound® processor, which supports a

       plug-in-capable audio framework. With low power consumption and advanced

       audio signal processing, this single-chip audio solution supports

       wideband voice, including noise cancellation and echo suppression, in a

       wide range of portable applications. It improves time to market,

       enhances near- and far-field voice performance, improves the performance

       of speech recognition engines, and enhances audio playback in small form

       factors with Dynamic Speaker Management™ technology.

    -  Maxim addresses another key piece of the mobile system with its new MEMS

       motion sensor, the MAX21000.  The device is an ultra-accurate, 3-axis,

       digital-output gyroscope that delivers unprecedented sensitivity over

       temperature and time. The MAX21000 is highly integrated and requires no

       external components, so it minimizes overall solution footprint. It

       offers low noise, high bandwidth, and a high-speed interface and is

       suitable for both user interface (UI) and optical image stabilization

       (OIS) applications. The device is built on a platform technology that

       allows for more complex and feature rich future products to address

       emerging motion-sensing functions.

RF/Communications Applications

    - The MAX2580* is a highly integrated LTE/3G small cell RF transceiver

       that supports all major cellular bands. This highly integrated solution

       requires very few external components to execute an all-band, multimode,

       multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radio design. The MAX2580 design

       package also includes full system-level reference designs to shorten

       time to market. This RF transceiver is ideal for mobile operators

       planning residential, enterprise, or outdoor small cell deployments in

       their next-generation heterogeneous networks (HetNet).
