Cavendish Kinetics is a fabless supplier of tunable components for RF circuits (antennas, power amps, filters) used in cellular handsets, laptops, netbooks, tablets, and other consumer wireless devices.
Cavendish Kinetics' products are designed to address a serious challenge facing the wireless industry: how to pack more features and services into wireless devices without adding radios or increasing the device size.
Cavendish Kinetics has created and honed hard-to-replicate technology based on third-generation RF MEMS expertise and its own innovative semiconductor processes.
By reducing component count, Cavendish Kinetics' tunable RF solutions enable the design of wireless devices with improved RF signaling, which leads to enhanced performance, lower power, and smaller RF systems. As a result, end users enjoy a more satisfying experience with their wireless devices.
Products incorporating Cavendish Kinetics' semiconductor products:
- Improve the voice and web browsing experience for users of today’s 3G and 4G wireless devices.
- Significantly improve the network efficiency of cellular operators by reducing re-tries and dropped-call rates.
- Provide 3G and 4G systems with improved RF signaling, which dramatically increases data throughput and network efficiency.
- Reduce component count, which makes it faster and less expensive to design better-performing wireless devices.
Cavendish Kinetics' roots extend to England’s Cambridge University and the renowned Cavendish Labs, where company co-founder Charles Smith, Ph.D., is a professor with research expertise in sub-micron semiconductor devices.
Cavendish Kinetics has its headquarters in San Jose, California, plus an R&D facility in The Netherlands.
