Movandi Unveils 5G RF Front-End Millimeter Wave Solutions

Privately held Movandi has started sampling what it claims is an innovative approach to RF front-end design with solutions for fixed and mobile networks.

Movandi’s new BeamX 28 and BeamX 39 solutions provide a fully integrated RF front-end system in a modular, high performance design to support a broad range of 5G millimetre wave applications, from base stations, small cells, and mobile broadband access points. The complete RF front-end solution is designed to optimise the antenna-to-baseband interface and integrates RF, PA and LNA, up and down converters, and frequency synthesiser/PLL. The combination of Movandi’s RF front-end with beamforming algorithms and calibration techniques aims to deliver superior performance in emerging mmWave networks.

BeamX Product Highlights:

  • Complete RF front-end solution: optimises the antenna- to-baseband interface and integrates RF PA and LNA, up and down converters, and frequency synthesiser/PLL

  • Modular architecture: scalable to support 16 to 256 element array sizes. Enables support for fixed networks from base stations, small cells, and fixed broadband access points to mobile from hot spots to tablets and laptops

  • RF front-end has been designed to support the full bandwidth and 256-QAM, ensuring compatibility beyond Release 15

  • Simultaneous and independent dual polarisation and dual beam operation, with ability to scale up to 32 simultaneous beams with independent polarisation

  • Performance achieved through online (on-the-fly) calibration with devices and across devices in array

  • Low-latency beam switching and high-resolution, on-chip beam-book memory

  • Automatic phase and frequency synchronised sub-arrays support high performance across larger phased arrays

  • Cost optimised using mature bulk CMOS process and standard substrates for antennas and system boards.
