Renesas expands its RF portfolio to cover the complete Macro Base Station Signal Chain
businesswire | January 20, 2021
Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a head provider of cutting edge semiconductor arrangements, today reinforced its industry-driving RF portfolio for conventional full scale base handset stations (BTS) with four new high-unwavering quality, elite gadgets, offering clients admittance to a total RF signal chain arrangement. This extension incorporates the business' first quad-channel F4482/1 TX variable addition intensifiers (VGA) and the F011x group of double channel first-stage low clamor enhancers (LNA). The new gadget set likewise incorporates the F1471 RF driver intensifier – the principal high-power pre-driver with P1dB of more than 1/2W – and the F2934 RF switch with higher disconnection in a more modest bundle for advanced predistortion (DPD) criticism way.
The extended RF arrangement conveys the superior, high unwavering quality, adaptability, and more modest structure factor requested by 5G Macro BTS frameworks. These new RF gadgets perform well across a wide scope of ecological conditions and recurrence transfer speeds, and coordinate Renesas' Smart Silicon™ developments, which empower more modest impressions for a given capacity – a critical preferred position for the enormous number of recieving wire ways needed for every framework.
“As the 5G transition picks up speed, we have upgraded our Macro BTS portfolio of receive and transmit chain components with higher performance and higher integration,” said Naveen Yanduru, Vice President of RF Communications, Industrial and Communications Business Division at Renesas. “We continue to bring new circuit design advancements to the market and are excited to introduce these new devices to address the complete RF signal chain and enable customers to be 5G ready as they bring their next-generation Macro BTS systems to market.”
Large scale BTS clients can consolidate these new gadgets with the as of late delivered F1490 high-acquire RF speaker and exceptionally incorporated F0443 RX VGA for complete RF signal chain arrangements.
The expanded Macro BTS portfolio includes:
Highly integrated F4482/1 quad-path TX VGAs
RF frequency range of 400 MHz to 2800 MHz
Balun, low pass filter, amplifier, and digital step attenuators integrated on one die
Renesas’ Zero Distortion™ technology for enhanced quality of service with increased dynamic range, and Glitch-Free™ technology to protect PA Assembly and simplify DPD implementation
Dual-channel F011x first-stage LNAs (balanced LNA or two-channel LNA)
RF frequency range of 650 MHz to 2700 MHz
Low noise figure of 0.55dB at 2600 MHz with low return loss (-27dB input, -23dB output)
High-linearity F1471 RF driver amplifier
RF frequency range of 400 MHz to 4200 MHz with 17dB gain
OIP3 up to +38dBm and OP1dB of 28.5dBm at 2600 MHz
Adjustable OIP3 performance and DC bias for tuning flexibility
High-reliability SP2T F2934 RF switch
RF frequency range of 50 MHz to 6000 MHz
Higher isolation (70dB at 1 GHz and 2 GHz, 74dB at 3 GHz, and 67dB at 4 GHz) in a small 3x3 QFN package that addresses PCB real estate constraints
Renesas Kz™ Constant Impedance technology to maintain VSWR during switching transition
Renesas has a solid development heritage with circuit configuration to address the advancing necessities of the remote foundation market. Protected Renesas RF arrangements with one of a kind specialized separation address the requirements of a wide scope of utilizations, including gigantic MIMO and mmWave cell base stations, correspondences frameworks, microwave (RF/IF), CATV, and test and estimation gear.
