NXP unveils RF power portfolio for 5G cellular infrastructure

NXP Semiconductors N.V. of Eindhoven, The Netherlands has unveiled what it claims is one of the industry’s most integrated portfolios of RF solutions for 5G cellular infrastructure, industrial and commercial markets, exceeding existing 5G RF power amplification demands for base stations - from MIMO to massive MIMO-based active antenna systems for cellular and millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum bands.

The firm says that its radio power solutions also simplify mMIMO deployments by enabling smaller, lighter active antenna systems, and its RF power multi-chip modules (MCMs) offer high levels of integration and performance. With solutions from sub-6GHz to 40GHz and from milliwatts to kilowatts, NXP aims to further simplify 5G infrastructure to allow partners to rapidly develop systems and join the 5G ecosystem.

“With the potential to transform entire industries and economies, 5G will be fully realized over time and NXP is uniquely positioned to facilitate its global adoption by offering one of the industry’s most comprehensive cellular infrastructure portfolio focused on driving the 5G-connected world,” believes Paul Hart, senior VP & general manager of NXP’s Radio Power Solutions. “NXP is ahead of the demand curve as the world’s top supplier of massive MIMO solutions enabling carriers to provide more bandwidth to customers,” he adds.

NXP says it is enabling many of the world’s first RF deployments in 5G for both sub-6GHz mMIMO and the first millimeter-wave networks. The firm adds that at the core of this is its trifecta of radio power solutions:

  • Smart antenna solutions, including highly integrated analog beam-forming products (operating at frequencies of 24-40GHz) that leverage NXP’s silicon germanium (SiGe) technology for 5G millimeter-wave infrastructure. The solutions enable customers to build the 5G mmWave phased-array antenna systems of the future and serve consumers with substantial bandwidths in both fixed wireless access (FWA) and radio access networks (RAN) applications.
  • Integrated, high-efficiency power solutions, with 5G mMIMO and IC products for base stations across all sub-6GHz cellular bands.
  • Discrete high-power RF transistors for 4G and 5G MIMO-based cellular base stations, plus a full suite of gallium nitride (GaN) RF and LDMOS RF power solutions for industrial, scientific & medical (ISM), broadcast, RF energy, mobile radio and aerospace & defense applications.

Claiming to be the only company delivering RF and transceiver solutions across the complete range of 5G network deployments from sub-6GHz to mmWave, NXP has established hardware and software partnerships with key multiple-system operators (MSOs) and original design manufacturers (ODMs) to quickly deliver systems for 5G hyper-connectivity to the market.

NXP is showcasing its RF infrastructure solutions portfolio in booth #548 at the IEEE’s International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2019) in Boston, MA, USA (2–7 June).
