Analog
Devices, Inc.
(ADI), the industry leader in RF and Microwave
technology and system design for 5G infrastructure, today introduced a
new solution for millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G with the highest available
level of integration to reduce design requirements and complexity in the
next generation of cellular network infrastructure. The solution
combines ADI’s advanced beamformer IC, up/down frequency conversion
(UDC), and additional mixed signal circuitry. This optimized “Beams to
Bits”signal chain represents a unique set of capabilities
only available from ADI.

“Millimeter-wave 5G is an emerging technology with great potential,”
said Karim Hamed, general manager of Microwave Communications at Analog
Devices. “It can be extremely difficult to design these systems from the
ground up, balancing system-level challenges in performance, standards,
and cost. This new solution leverages ADI’s best-in-class technology,
long legacy in RF, microwave and mmWave communications infrastructure,
and deep expertise across the RF spectrum to simplify the design process
for customers, reduce overall component count, and accelerate the path
to 5G deployment.”

The new mmWave 5G chipset includes the 16-channel ADMV4821 dual/single
polarization beamformer IC, 16-channel ADMV4801 single-polarization
beamformer IC and the ADMV1017 mmWave UDC. The 24- to 30-GHz beamforming
+ UDC solution forms a 3GPP 5G NR compliant mmWave front-end to address
the n261, n257 and n258 bands. The high channel density, coupled with
the ability to support both single- and dual-polarization deployments,
greatly increases system flexibility and reconfigurability for multiple
5G use cases while best-in-class equivalent isotropically radiated power
(EIRP) extends radio range and density. ADI’s heritage in mmWave allows
customers to take advantage of world class applications and system
design to optimize complete lineups for thermal, RF, power and routing
considerations.
