Small cell base station

Block diagram


Our integrated circuits and reference designs help you create small cell base stations that enable multiband operation, higher bandwidth and better system reliability. Our analog front-end devices use a new RF sampling architecture, while our companion power and clocking technologies allow you to complete your 5G design with confidence.

Design requirements

Small cell base stations require:

  • Highly integrated analog front-end devices with wide bandwidth and multiband operation.
  • Network synchronization over packet-based fronthaul interface.
  • High-density power management operating at high ambient temperature.
