Higher bandwidth for cellular services has increased the demand for small cell radios and towers 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.
