Higher bandwidth for cellular services has increased demand for 5G multiple-input/multiple-output (MIM0) solutions globally. This Renesas reference design gives an overview of the complex RF and timing layout required for such a solution.

System Benefits​:

  • Sub-6GHz device targets the small signal RF chain from RF antenna to ADC for Rx and DAC to PA for Tx.
  • Best-in-class advanced timing products have very low phase noise and low spurious jitter.
  • Support input clock redundancy, mid to high clock fan-out, JESD204B/C, and IEEE 1588 for enhanced common public radio interface (eCPRI).
  • Single-chip synchronization and clock generation.



  • Massive 5G MIMO
