Radios

slab-divider-red

Supporting the wide variety of radio technologies is a daunting challenge–let alone keeping up with changing standards and requirements. Only Xilinx provides a secure, adaptable, standards-compliant solutions for all classes of radios for 4G and 5G networks.

Small Cell to Macro Cell Radios

Each cell radio is unique which is why Xilinx offers the broad range of capabilities in the Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC, Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC, and Versal™ ACAP series. Incorporating RF blocks with both the Xilinx DFD and CFR IP saves power, decreases time to market, and improves scalability. Xilinx programmability allows you to adapt to new standards without new hardware – even after deployment.

Optimized Solutions to Meet Advancing Requirements

As the industry moves forward delivering faster speeds and more features, Xilinx is there. UltraScale brought world-class 28G transceivers for fronthaul and CPRI, and UltraScale+ introduced unmatched levels of analog integration for RRU applications with Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC. Our latest innovation, Versal ACAPs, introduces an expansive processing platform for 5G beamforming and transport.

Beamforming and Massive MIMO

slab-divider-red

5G promises much greater spectral efficiency, enabled by beamforming and massive MIMO. Xilinx is leading the way, as our solutions have been instrumental in early 5G trials, initial deployments and massive scale out of mMIMO systems.

Fronthaul, Beamformer, and Radio

Fronthaul, Beamformer, and Radio

Massive MIMO requires adaptable, optimized partitioning and integration of complex digital and RF signal processing functions. Xilinx’s unique portfolio of silicon and IP enables OEM’s to architect systems best suited to their unique requirements to address panel size, weight, power, and cost constraints.


Achieving Panel Density

One of the greatest massive MIMO challenges is achieving panel density. The sheer number of radios puts power and space at a premium. Zynq Ultrascale+ RFSoC integrates ADCs and DACs to deliver the highest performance per watt solution for interfacing to 5G antennas. These devices also integrate IP for interpolation and mixing as well as allowing for integration of the DFE and CFR in the radio head.

Beamforming Takes a System

Tracking and targeting multiple devices with multiple radios requires sophisticated algorithms and complex real-time processing. Versal AI Core ACAPs provide system-level compute not before seen in a programmable device, enabling on-the-fly calculation of the phase and gain coefficients required by each radio. The embedded Xilinx AI Engine provides a vector processor ideal for matrix math.

X-Haul and Connectivity Solutions

slab-divider-red

Xilinx offers a comprehensive wireless connectivity IP portfolio to address connectivity and synchronization requirements for evolving wireless base station infrastructure needs.

Converged Access Network block diagram

Converged Access Network

Xilinx provides a path to communicate with each of many disparate radio units or other endpoints, transport them over an arbitrary network, then regenerate each channel remotely. Consolidating into a single, reconfigurable Xilinx solution reduces upfront system cost and allows the use of inexpensive and scalable packet networks.

Hundreds of Protocols Supported

From O-RAN (eCPRI) to PON to a wide range of Ethernet standards, Xilinx transceiver technology has the built-in flexibility and performance for any-port/any-protocol X-haul networks. Reconfigurable logic allows for a customized solution based on the required transport product. Xilinx Versal Premium ACAPs support rates ranging from 1GE to 112Gb/s, facilitating the transport medium of choice, whether that is a single coherent fiber or an existing network.
