Firms all over the world are keen to invest in revolutionary technology such as 5G, which has created vast business opportunities owing to its enormous potential of supporting much higher bandwidth and low latency, providing ultra-high speed experiences, connecting billions of objects around the globe to the internet, and enabling immense virtual reality experiences.
5G presents several design challenges as it promises to offer the benefits with less power, low cost and with ultra-reliability. To meet the design challenges and the promises offered by 5G communication technology and to bring in new business opportunities, Faststream Technologies provides solution with its customizable and dynamically reconfigurable RU platform supporting a bandwidth of 200 MHz for meeting the second-wave 5G NR requirements.
Digital Frontend or DFE has replaced analog signal processing part in the software defend radio which incorporates most of the challenging modules of the 5G technologies such as Crest Factor Reduction (CFR), Digital Pre-Distorter (DPD), and beamforming to support massive MIMO architecture.
Faststream’s new DFE SoC combines hardened Digital Front End (DFE) blocks with adaptive logic DFE solution incorporating CFR, DPD, an integrated direct RF sampling transceiver and enables more processing per channel, greater bandwidth, and greater integration while remaining cost-effective for 5G deployments.
Our DFE’s unique combination of standard-compliant hard IP and configurable logic enable customers to customize RU to meet changing market requirements. The solution covers 5G NR use cases, including those for the low, mid, and high band spectrums and various other RF applications, such as phased array radar and communications test equipment.
Faststream’s new RU can be deployed in Category A or Category B configuration, with the flexibility to address radio access network architectures while delivering -50 dBc or less ACLR performance. Each RU includes an eFPGA as well as a transceiver with built-in Crest Factor Reduction (CFR) and Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD). The role of CFR is very critical in achieving -50 dBc ACPR performance for both TDD and FDD while maintaining EVM within 3.5%.
The typical 5G O-RAN Radio Unit base station platform includes
RF Front End: The major components of RF Front End in 5G O-RAN are
Digital Front End: The major components of the 5G RU Digital Front End includes
Lower PHY Baseband Processing: Lower PHY layer includes functions of
Fronthaul Transport: Fronthaul connection synchronization is accomplished using GPS/PTP (IEEE 1588) modules. Both fiber and Ethernet may be used to provide the fronthaul link between RU and DU, which is based on the eCPRI.
