Wireless Backhaul Single-Chip SoC Solution

Xilinx Smarter Solutions for backhaul are optimized for the lowest footprint to minimize BoM cost and power consumption. The solutions address the requirements posed by legacy voice-centric networks as well as data-driven packet-switched IP networks to support both TDM and Ethernet payload interfaces.  Xilinx Smarter Solutions, including SmartCORE™ IP and Zynq™-7000 Programmable SoCs, enable greater functionality in fewer devices with greater flexibility, lower BOM cost, and total power consumption when compared to alternative ASIC or ASSP solutions.
