PMC introduces industry’s most integrated, lowest power radio transceiver chipset for next-generation macro basestations

13 JUNE 2012

PMC®, the semiconductor innovator transforming storage, optical and mobile networks, has announced the industry’s lowest power and most integrated radio transceiver chipset for macro basestation designs. PMC’s new UniTRX™ chipset replaces up to 14 discrete devices, and reduces both board space and power by more than 50 percent for equivalent multi-standard basestation radio designs. It addresses multi-standard macro basestation performance requirements and simplifies the design of dense MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) radio units, such as active antenna systems. The UniTRX chipset is designed to support wideband modules operating in the 400MHz to 4GHz frequency range. It addresses the performance requirements of macro basestation transceivers that feature multiple standards, including MC-GSM, cdma2000®, WCDMA and LTE. High integration and low power make the chipset suitable for single-sector radio module designs and scalable for MIMO applications, such as active antenna systems.
