Low-Noise Amplifier Aids TDD Small Cells (.PDF Download)

Large capacity is essential to the success of present and future cellular wireless networks, and a well-designed low-noise amplifier (LNA) can help increase the capacity of a small cell. A typical small cell has a range of about 10 m to 1 km compared to a traditional macrocell at a  few tens of kilometers.1 As a result, a small cell can improve frequency reuse by as much as 1600×.2

On the flip side, hundreds of small cells are needed to provide the same coverage as one macr
