Portfolio of RF power multi-chip modules supports massive MIMO active antenna systems for 5G base stations
December 3, 2019 – Geneva, Ill.: Richardson RFPD, Inc., an Arrow Electronics company, announced today the availability and full design support capabilities for the comprehensive RF power multi-chip module (MCM) portfolio for 5G mMIMO from NXP Semiconductors.
These devices are part of NXP’s 5G Airfast solutions product family and include LDMOS power amplifier modules, GaAs pre-driver modules and receiver modules for cellular frequency bands from 2.3 GHz to 3.8 GHz, with output power from 3W to 5W.
The fully integrated power amplifier modules feature advanced high-performance in-package Doherty, fully matched 50-ohm input/output, multiple gain stages, and a small footprint. This combination of features is ideal for scaling mMIMO 5G configuration up to 64T64R.
Key products and features of these RF power MCMs include:
Power amplifier modules:
(3.7 GHz band, +37 dBm Avg.)
AFSC5G35D37 (3.5 GHz band, +37 dBm Avg.)
AFSC5G35D35 (3.5 GHz band, +35 dBm Avg.)
AFSC5G26D37 (2.6 GHz band, +37 dBm Avg.)
