IRVINE, CA, Jun 27, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –
RFaxis, Inc., a fabless semiconductor company which focuses on
innovative, next-generation RF solutions for the wireless
connectivity and cellular mobility markets, announced today that its
RFX2401 single-chip/single-die RF Front-End Integrated Circuits
(RFeIC(TM)) for 2.4GHz ZigBee/ISM applications has been selected by
Resensys LLC for their revolutionary wireless structural health
monitor system that measures in real time load, temperature,
vibration and mechanical shift for civil and mechanical structures.
This wireless sensor is enabled by the RFaxis RFX2401 RFeIC(TM) and
the Texas Instruments (TI) CC2530 2.4GHz System-on-Chip (SoC) for
IEEE 802.15.4 ZigBee/ISM.

Mehdi Kalantari, Resensys CEO and founder, stated, “Our wireless
structural health monitoring system can prevent the catastrophic
structural failure of critical public infrastructures by sensing and
providing early detection of adverse strains, cracks and deformations
in such infrastructures. The sensor itself requires a
high-reliability radio frequency (RF) communications link to work
properly. By using the RFaxis RFX2401 RFeIC(TM) and the TI CC2530 SoC
with our patent-pending sensor solution, we were able to create a
reliable, robust and cost effective solution. At Resensys, we are
proud to deliver this compact, lightweight, self-adhesive and
self-powered sensor technology to the structural market. Our
experience using RFaxis products in our sensors has been very
successful because the RFX2401 is a robust, yet easy-to-implement RF
Front-End solution.”

“The Resensys structural monitor is a cutting-edge application of
ZigBee/ISM wireless sensor networks for ensuring the safety and
reliability of civil and mechanical infrastructures,” said Mike
Neshat, chairman and CEO of RFaxis. “We commend Resensys for their
innovation, and we are pleased that Resensys has selected our RFX2401
RFeIC(TM) to serve as their system’s RF Front-End.”

The RFaxis RFX2401 is a fully integrated, single-chip/single-die
RFeIC(TM) that incorporates all RF Front-End functionality needed for
2.4GHz IEEE 802.15.4 ZigBee/ISM applications. The RFX2401 comes
complete with a power amplifier (PA), low noise amplifier (LNA),
transmit and receive switching, matching network, harmonic filter,
power detector, and CMOS control logic all integrated onto a single
silicon die and delivered in an ultra compact 3x3mm 16-lead QFN
package.

About Resensys
The Resensys mission is to protect infrastructure
systems against structural failure by providing a cost effective and
scalable solution for the real time monitoring of such structures.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, of the 601,027
operational bridges in the U.S., 12% are structurally deficient. The
worldwide magnitude of aging infrastructures is significantly larger.
Resensys has completed the RD phase of its product, a structural
health monitoring system based on its patent-pending Active RF Test
(ART) technology. The Resensys solution for protecting infrastructure
systems against structural failure is based upon wireless /
battery-less ART sensors, and remote monitoring and structural
diagnostics software. Currently, their solution is being deployed on
major highway bridges in Maryland. The Resensys solution addresses
the tremendous need for cost effective, real time monitoring systems
for aging infrastructures; in particular highway bridges. In addition
to bridges, the Resensys solution can be implemented for airframes,
pipelines, drilling platforms, railroad tracks, dams, buildings etc.
Resensys is currently part of the Technology Innovation Program
(TAP), the technology incubator for the Univeristy of Maryland at
College Park, MD. For more information, visit
