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

Nexar Uses Veniam Technology To Create Its Real Time Digital Twin Of The Road

Veniam Technology | January 03, 2022

Nexar, a leading computer vision company, and the number one consumer smart dash cam seller in the United States, announced today a strategic partnership with Veniam, the leading provider of intelligent networking for the internet of moving things. Using Veniam's software APIs, Nexar will be able to better collect the images it needs to create an AI-digital twin of US roads. This will enable Nexar to make the most of all available wireless networks (4G/5G, Wi-Fi, mesh…) and transfer massive amounts of data to the cloud in a secure and cost-effective way. This cooperation will also help to further expand the wealth of vision data it collected by Nexar, to build a real time twin of the road, improve safety, train Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) and inform city decisions, as well as "see" changes in the road. "Veniam's capabilities are a great fit for Nexar and will help it realize its vision of seeing what's ahead on the road," said Eran Shir, Co-founder and CEO of Nexar. "Given the huge volumes of vision data coming from the road and the AI it requires for solving connectivity/bandwidth problems, as well as addressing the issue of compute costs. Veniam's technology helps us with the connectivity, allowing us to transfer more data, making the real time digital twin of the road better and more robust." "Both Veniam and Nexar look at vehicles not just as transportation machines but as critical data sources to make our cities healthier, safer and most sustainable,We are delighted to complement Nexar´s system with Veniam's intelligent networking software thereby expanding and accelerating Nexar's access to valuable city data." João Barros, founder and CEO of Veniam Using Veniam's software, some Nexar dash cam models will be able to make smart decisions on what data to send and when, as well as through which networks. This dramatically reduces the overall cost per GB, while increasing the total amount of data available. As more and more auto OEMs install cameras and advanced sensor systems onboard their vehicles, Nexar will be able to leverage Veniam's communications technology at the edge to split and share the data flows, making it easier for different cars to collaborate in understanding the world and driving safely to their destinations. With this partnership, Nexar and Veniam are laying the groundwork for realizing their common vision of improving the lives of millions of people by making cities better and safer. About Nexar Nexar is a vision-based software company building the world's first safe-driving network. When drivers pair Nexar-powered smart dash cams with the Nexar app, they join a connected vehicle network that uses computer vision and sensor fusion to see hazards on the road, and alert those in the surrounding area. Using anonymous, aggregated data captured from this network, Nexar has developed a portfolio of vision-based data services for public and private sector partners to make roadways safer and more efficient. This includes the Nexar CityStream platform, which supports construction zone and road inventory monitoring, and now Nexar Virtual Camera. About Veniam Veniam is accelerating future mobility and making places more human by delivering intelligent networking software for delivery fleets, dash-cams, telematics providers, connected cars, autonomous vehicles and other mobile IoT devices. With an IP portfolio of more than 130 issued patents, Veniam makes the most out of all available networks (4G/5G, Wi-Fi, V2X, etc.), moving massive amounts of data between vehicles and the cloud - all with lowest GB price, quality of service and security profiles. Best known for its mobile Wi-Fi offload solution and city-scale vehicle mesh networks, Veniam works closely with the world's largest fleets, Auto OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.
