Speaking at the Intel Developer Forum, Senior Vice President and Intel Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Pat Gelsinger outlined Intel's "Radio Free Intel" approach for integrating radios into future processors and for developing adaptive radio platforms, making wireless communication ubiquitous.
Over the next decade, the majority of the world will communicate wirelessly," Gelsinger said.
Intel developed core radio components using its 0.18-micron digital CMOS process, including the world's fastest voltage controlled oscillator (a radio component that determine the frequency at which signals are transmitted and received) in CMOS operating at speeds greater than 75 GHz. By building these and other analog radio components with a digital manufacturing process, Intel aims to lower the cost of adding wireless capabilities to future products.
