Xilinx is claiming a disruptive integration and architectural breakthrough for 5G wireless with the infusion of RF-class analog technology into its 16 nm All Programmable MPSoCs.
The company says its new All Programmable RFSoCs eliminate discrete data converters and provide 50-75% power and footprint reduction for 5G massive-MIMO and millimetre-wave wireless backhaul applications.
Large scale 2D antenna array systems will be key to the increase in spectral efficiency and network densification needed for 5G. Manufacturers must find new ways to meet stringent requirements for commercial deployment. With the integration of high-performance ADCs and DACs in an All Programmable SoC, radio and wireless backhaul units can meet previously unattainable power and form factor requirements, while increasing channel density. Additionally, RFSoC devices allow manufacturers to streamline design and development cycles to meet 5G deployment timelines.
