NXP Semiconductors has launched a receiver module that offers two independent channels that can meet 5G requirements.
Transmission speed is not the only factor that boosts the speed of a network. The processing of the received data as well needs to fulfill its role as a part of the system and provide efficient results.
NXP Semiconductors has launched the BTS7202U front-end receiver module (RX-FEM) that can fulfill the processing speed for a network. The operation range of the device is 3.3 to 4.2 GHz. It consists of 2 independent receiver channels each with a low noise amplifier (LNA).
The gain of the module can be set to two different levels – 36.5 dB (high gain mode) and 19 dB (low gain mode) – with fast switching between the two modes. The front-end module is implemented using the NXP’s silicon germanium (SiGe) process. The process offers improved linearity and reduced noise figures to support better 5G signal quality.
The module has a noise figure of 0.95dB with each channel having a switch to route the high-power TX signals to termination load. The module is available in an HVQFN40 package that measures 6.00 x 6.00 x 0.85 mm and has ESD protection on all pins. It is ideal for 5G massive MIMO and wireless infrastructure applications.
