Xilinx and NXP Collaborate on LTE-A and 5G

Xilinx and NXP have been working together to combine Xilinx's newest crest factor reduction (CFR) and digital pre-distortion (DPD) SmartCORE IP with NXP's Gen9 LDMOS RF highly efficient power amplifier technology. The combination of NXP's advanced power amplifier devices and Xilinx All Programmable devices and radio IP enables customers to implement smaller, lighter and higher reliability radios suitable for use in next-generation wireless infrastructure equipment.

Power amplifiers of higher efficiency achieve the same radio output power and enable a CapEx saving through the use of lower power rated devices and reduced cooling mechanics. Xilinx's Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC is the first hardware and software programmable device supporting the latest generation of CPRI at 10.1Gbps and JESD204B at 12.5 Gbps line rates.

Xilinx's latest CFR and DPD IP now support up to 100MHz of radio bandwidth in single RAT configurations in addition to supporting MC-GSM with frequency hopping in single RAT or multi-RAT configurations up to 75MHz.

"Xilinx and NXP will continue to collaborate on future technology standards such as LTE-A and 5G, and expand the system impact with the most efficient and easy to adopt combination of radio algorithms and power amplifier technology," saidDavid Hawke, director of wireless communications at Xilinx.
