SIVERS IMA and NXP to Develop Fixed Wireless Access Solutions for 5G-NR

first_imgAt Mobile World Congress Americas 2019, NXP Semiconductors and Sivers IMA Holding announced that they are collaborating to develop a state-of-the-art 5G-NR (New Radio) solutions for gigabit Fixed Wireless Access applications.The agreement is an ecosystem relationship around NXP’s highly flexible Layerscape programmable baseband platform and Sivers IMA’s 5G-NR chip and phased-array antenna. Both companies will contribute to secure a high-level of integration between NXP’s baseband and the Sivers IMA’s 28 GHz and 60 GHz RFICs and phased-array antennas. The Sivers IMA and NXP solution offers less current consumption and lower costs, due to the need for fewer components.This relationship is a very important step for Sivers within the 5G-NR mm-Wave ecosystem. The integration between NXP’s baseband and Sivers chip and antenna offers a state-of-the-art solution and a quick time to market for customers who want to offer 5G-NR products, for example, Customer Premises Units (CPEs) or small cells for gigabit Fixed Wireless Access applications and integrated access and backhaul.The NXP Layerscape Access portfolio of programmable baseband processors delivers unprecedented control over the 5G-NR software in order to support new O-RAN compliant options. Together with NXP Layerscape multi-core Arm SoCs and the EdgeVerse secure software framework 5G infrastructure customers can deploy a wide variety of 5G Access Edge systems. According to the report titled “5G Millimeter Wave 2019: Radio Architecture and Outlook report”, there will be more than 29 million 5G-NR mm-Wave CPE units shipped between 2021 and 2025.last_img read more
