The new AFSC5G26E38 Airfast module is a prime example of the increased performance delivered in the 2nd generation MCM family. The device delivers 20% more output power compared to the previous generation, addressing the need for broader 5G coverage per base station tower, without increasing the radio unit size. It also features a power-added efficiency of 45%, 4 points higher than the previous generation for an overall reduction in the 5G network electricity consumption. Highlighting the performance of NXP’s latest LDMOS generation in high frequencies, the new AFSC5G40E38 addresses the 5G C-band from 3.7 to 4.0 GHz and has recently been selected by NEC Rakuten Mobile in
“NXP’s latest multi-chip modules provide an efficiency boost resulting from the latest enhancements to LDMOS and enhanced integration,” said
A Comprehensive Multi-Chip Module Portfolio For 5G Expansion
NXP’s RF power Multi-Chip Modules include LDMOS ICs, paired with an integrated Doherty splitter and combiner and a 50-ohm in/out matching. This high level of integration removes RF complexities and eliminates multiple prototype passes, while the reduction of component count helps improve yields and decrease qualification cycle time. The 2nd generation complements the initial series released last year, extending the frequency and power levels. Both generations share the same pin-out format to enable RF designers to quickly scale from one design to another, reducing overall development time.
The 2nd generation of Airfast MCMs is comprised of 10 new devices covering 5G frequency bands from 2.3 to 4.0 GHz, from 37 to 39 dBm average output power. The devices are qualified now and will be supported by NXP’s new RF Circuit Collection, a digital library of RF power reference circuits.
NXP’s 5G Access Edge Portfolio
From antenna-to-processor, NXP offers a robust portfolio of technologies for powering the 5G Access Edge that delivers best-of-class performance and security for infrastructure, industrial, and automotive applications. This includes the company’s Airfast family of RF power solutions and its Layerscape family of programmable baseband processors for wireless data links, fixed wireless access, and small cell devices.
