As nearly every aspect of our lives is increasingly functioning within the confines of super-fast digitalization, it is becoming one of the most crucial driving forces for society at large. However, even though digitalization is giving rise to a surfeit of tools and channels enabling businesses to streamline their business operations more effectively, there seems to be a bump on the road. In a world replete with various platforms like Skype, Slack, Zoom, and others allowing hassle-free sharing of information, files, and documents, a dearth of frequency bandwidth has also emerged. Right from countless cellular networks to walkietalkies to satellite communications connected to the Internet, there is an imminent shortage of radio frequency spectrum that companies are trying to overcome to cater to massive amounts of data consumption in this digital age. This is exactly where RFM Integrated Device (RFMi) is making a difference by offering a wide array of radio frequency (RF) components and module products for wireless connectivity and communication that are helping OEMs to overcome connectivity and communication barriers and give way to seamless business operations.

Building on four decades of experience in the design and manufacture of SAW enabled low-power RF products, the company is designing, developing, and marketing advanced SAW filters and resonators; Crystal components (Xtal, TCXO, VCTCXO, Xtal filters, etc.); Dielectric filters; Patch antennas and Chip antennas; and certain front-end modules that include LNA and SAW filters. All of them are widely used to obliterate wireless communication barriers and frequency-related challenges to facilitate smooth exchange of information across automotive, industrial, medical implant, telehealth and telecom industries.

“Leveraging our five frequency and timing product lines for the advanced and emerging wireless applications, OEM design engineers get to connect more devices, equipment, and processes than ever before,” says Dr. Jidong Dai, General Manager of RFMi. Having been granted several US and international patents, 3 Nortel President Awards for Innovation, Patent & Intellectual Property Generation, and Technical Excellency respectively, along with numerous technical papers published under his name, Dr. Dai served the technical committee of IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium for many years, in the subcommittee specializing in SAW, BAW and RF MEMS. All his previous experiences in the RF technology space have culminated to this point where Dai, along with RFMi, aims to provide enabling frequency technologies and products to customers and encourage value-added business growth across manifold industries.

To further elucidate on that, as 5G continues to empower more selfdriving cars, factory automation, and remote surgery, which require ultra-high reliability and low latency, it is ushering in the world of the Internet of Things (IoT). It is deemed as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, set to lay the foundation for smart homes, smart buildings, smart cities, precision agriculture, and more. In lieu of these developments, RFMi is focusing mainly on next-gen low power, M2M and IOT connectivity for non-mobile phone, high reliability professional applications that are enabling multiple industries to connect, communicate, control and monitor countless wireless-enabled OEM devices over the Internet.

Another noteworthy highlight of RFMi is its expertise in building top-grade timing products. The company had a long history of making industry leading, very low phase noise and jitter clocks. Currently, it offers a wide range of high-performance Crystal products, from Xtal resonators, temperature sensing Xtal resonators, XO, TCXO, VCXO, VCTCXO and OCXO. The Xtal based oscillators and clocks feature high frequency stability, high Q, low phase noise and jitter. In addition, RFM offers ceramic DR filters, selected BAW filters and low-temperature cofired ceramic filters and diplexers (LTCC filters and diplexers), mostly for higher frequency applications. These filters are predominantly used for 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz WiFi routers and networking, DSRC (V2V and V2X), LTE and 5G BTS and small cells.

Apart from their line of industryenabling and reforming products, RFMi’s customer-oriented approach is also what gives the company a competitive edge over its peers. It is on this note that the company has added hundreds of products to its portfolio that are based on customer requests. “We don’t go out and create something out of thin air to push it to the customers. We always speak to the customers, understand their needs and design our products based on customer requirements,” adds Dr. Dai. Additionally, the company also maintains a flexible business stance as well. While using manufacturing partner’s factory in Taiwan, they also use the manufacturing partner’s factory in mainland China and collaborate with a production facility in South Korea. Building on their innovative and customercentric product lines coupled with a supple business approach, the company is aiming to grow organically as well as through strategic collaboration with other companies. “The organic growth is the pillar upon which we will future-proof our growth and success in the coming years,” concludes Dr. Dai
