Shorten Design Cycles, Reduce Power, and Costs

The new radio platform from Analog Devices for the 5G O-RAN ecosystem will feature all the core functionality of the radio unit including an O-RAN compliant, 7.2x low PHY baseband ASIC; ADI’s next-generation software-defined transceiver; an RF front end; as well as timing and power solutions.

Designed to enable significant power, size, cost, and weight improvements, the radio platform addresses the critical power consumption and cost challenges of next-generation networks. The low PHY implements the eCPRI interface and supports LTE, 5G, and NB-IoT. A highly integrated transceiver with digital front end provides a low power radio conversion solution while minimizing RF front-end complexity and relaxing filter requirements. The DFE implements advanced algorithms for crest factor reduction (CFR) and digital predistortion (DPD) along with channel digital up/downconversion (DUC/DDC).

ADI’s algorithm team continually works with major PA vendors to collaborate on developing the most efficient linearized options for the latest PA technologies. This gives you the most advanced PA/DPD pairing for your designs, across band and power variants, and reduces development time in the mid-stage of the design effort.

ADI’s systems team collaborates with ecosystem participants by providing reference designs and interoperability testing, which reduces integration time throughout your design cycle.


Technology evaluation platforms will be available later this year.
