RFIC is an abbreviation for Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit. The frequency range of Radio Frequency (RF) is debatable, but normally falls between 300 MHz to 30 GHz. In the electronics industry, RFIC is a generic term used for integrated circuits designed for wireless communication.
There is considerable interest in RFIC research due to the cost benefit of shifting as much of the wireless transceiver as possible to a single technology, which in turn would allow for a system on chip solution as opposed to the more common system on package. This interest is bolstered by the pervasiveness of wireless capabilities in electronics. Current research focuses on integrating the RF power amplifier (PA) with CMOS technology.
