NXP’s RapidRF Speeds mMIMO Radio Design Supported by RFMW



RFMW announced design and sales support for NXP’s RapidRF front-end reference designs. Accelerating design time and prototyping for massive MIMO radio units, or small cell output devices or even as drivers for high-power macro base stations, RapidRF reference boards incorporate a T/R switch, circulator, Rx LNA, Rx linear amplifier, Tx path pre-drivers and an asymmetrical Doherty output. Also included are the TDD I2C logic controls for a complete 5G, TDD radio system RF front-end solution. Ideal for transmitters requiring 2.5 to 5 W average at the antenna with approximately 8.5 dB PAR LTE/NR signals, RapidRF reference boards can be linearized for up to 200 MHz instantaneous bandwidth while meeting regulatory emissions requirements when used in conjunction with digital pre-distortion.
