Broadcom Introduces Microwave Outdoor Chip

Broadcom introduced an integrated chip for microwave outdoor units (ODUs) that combines the functionality of up to 10 off-the-shelf chips, dramatically reducing the size, complexity, production cost and power consumption of microwave radio frequency units (RFUs). The new BCM85810 RF system-on-a-chip (SoC) is designed for microwave split-mount and full/all outdoor units (FODU/AODU). Two variants cover all standard point-to-point microwave frequency bands and all channel bandwidths.
