Cellular Base Station

Overview

The increased amount of data and video being transmitted via the cloud has placed huge bandwidth and power demands on the entire infrastructure market. The combination of a wide range of bias control DCPs, voltage references, digital converters, and highly integrated and industry-proven timing tree solutions addresses the needs of these modern systems.

Target applications include base station radio cards, remote ratio units, baseband units, satellites, and microwave communication links.

Key Features

  • Lowest phase noise, which maximizes signal-to-noise ratio from converters and enables the best radio performance
  • Broad frequency range allows design portability to support existing 4G and future 5G standards as well as mmWave massive MIMO radios
  • Extremely low skew drift capability, making it ideal for beamforming applications
  • State-of-the-art solutions for 5G, with up to 18GHz LO output frequency with leading phase noise, low phase skew drift for AAS/beamforming, and cTE < 5ns for network equipment
