Single Radio Chip Looks to 5G Systems

As bandwidth is devoured by an increasing wireless communications of voice, data, and video, communications network developers seek new solutions in the form of Fifth Generation (5G) cellular communications systems. One wideband radio integrated circuit (IC) candidate for 4G and other broadband wireless systems can be found at IMS exhibition booth Nos. 1514 and 1519, under the Analog Devices banner, the RadioVerse AD9371 transceiver which is being unveiled at the 2016 IMS. The device uses a direct-conversion radio architecture to cover a total frequency range of 300 MHz to 6 GHz with bandwidths as wide as 100 MHz. It is capable of supporting time-division-duplex (TDD) and frequency-division-duplex (TDD) systems and includes multiple wideband transmitters and receivers, including multiple-input observation and “sniffer” receivers, on a single packaged chip. With multiple analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs), the AD9371 performs error correction and other signal processing in the digital realm, with the versatility to handle communications for 3G, 4G, and, when it is ready, 5G wireless communications systems. Don’t miss a chance to learn more about this all-in-one radio transceiver solution, at IMS exhibition booth Nos. 1514 and 1519.
