Interface & Connectivity

Overview

Description

The RapidWave™ RWM6050 is a millimeter wave (mmWave) baseband wireless modem for wireless backhaul and fixed infrastructure wireless access applications. The RWM6050 delivers cost effective and power efficient solutions for the emerging backhaul and access markets. It can be paired with mmWave RF chipsets to deliver multi-gigabit throughput at several hundred meters distance. The RWM6050 is highly configurable with a radio interface that provides easy integration with RF solutions.

The RWM6050 features a high degree of configurability with flexible channelization modes and modulation coding to scale bandwidth up to multi-gigabit data rates. Internally, there are dual modems including the mixed-signal front-end  resulting in an integration strategy that delivers the most cost-effective and power-efficient solution.

The RWM6050 incorporates technology licensed from and developed in collaboration with Blu Wireless Technology. Blu Wireless Technology provides Typhoon Development Platforms for the Renesas RWM6050. Typhoon is a family of highly programmable wireless communication modules that leverage the Renesas RWM6050 device. 

Before deploying your mmWave network, examine the range and throughput estimation for a wireless connection using your specific link characteristics. For more information, check out the Blu Wireless Technology mmWave Link Budget Calculator on the Blu Wireless website.
