Gain ICs' technology is so impactful that it can enable RFID tags to replace bar codes in virtually every retail product.  In addition, Gain ICs technology with revolutionze data transmission performance in high volume markets such as cellular phones, home WiFi, and home entertainment electronics.  Currently, 802.11ac WiFi speeds require the use of a $2,000 Enterprise level router for a paltry 33% speed increase.  This performance improvement comes at the cost of sacrificing transmission distance while requiring dramatic increases in consumed power.  For more information contact us .

Gain ICs is ready to present its compelling story on changing the WiFi market.  The compelling story is coupled with an offer to partner with Gain ICs in the development of an alternative, less complex, more efficient, lower cost 802.11ac solution that dramatically improves data transmission speeds.

How it works

Gain ICs has developed a jitter-free PLL that enables very fast data transmission (1.3 Gb/s) via a single, two constellation, phase modulated signal using Ultrphase Modulation (UPM).  Said differently, the reference clock can now be tracked closely and sped up consideralby without the fear of poor Bit Error Rates (BER) and additional transmission power that is required for a high SNR; both problems that plague existing technologies when using Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) methods.

This disruptive technology  eliminates the noise issues that plague QAM 256 and resulted in the many concessions in 802.11ac.  Gain ICs’ technology enables transition of 802.11ac performance from the enterprise space into high volume applications such as home WiFi and cell phones.

The main limiting factor in 802.11ac Wi-Fi, cellular phones, and some forms of RFID tags is the reliance on QAM architecture for transmitting data.  Gain ICs technology allows a simpler modulation/demodulation scheme that enables faster data transmission at lower power with a more quality signal. 

Thus the improvements realized include:

- Longer transmission distances

- Significant reduction in the amount of bandwidth required to transmit a signal
- 8 MHz vs. 160 MHz for QAM in 802.11ac appliecations (802.11ac requires 3 signals, antennae, and amplifier stage not to mention there is only one FCC dedicated channel when three are needed)
- Resolves the Frequency Sharing Dilemma That Has a Presidential Mandate to Overcome Frequency Crowding

- Less Power Required to Transmit (up to 1/128 reduction)

- 15 Times Improved Spectral Density; more channesl for ISPs and cell providers to bid on

- Uses a Single Antennae (802.11ac calls for 3 antennae with beam forming)

- Uses a Basic Antenna (versus a tuned antennae for QAM)

- Less Complexity (see the comparison block diagrams below)

- Lower SNR Threshold

- Better Noise Immunity

- Fewer Delays in Signal Processing (no A/D, D/A, and DSP conversions
