Xilinx Announces 1.6Gbps Low Power, Low Cost, Small Cell Backhaul Modem SmartCORE IP for Millimeter Wave Applications

256 QAM millimeter wave modem solution supports both point to point as well as point to multipoint line-of-sight communications, addressing both 60GHz and 80GHz markets

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 18, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced its 1.6Gbps low power, low cost, small cell backhaul modem IP for millimeter wave applications. The Xilinx® 256 QAM millimeter wave modem solution supports both point to point as well as point to multipoint line-of-sight communications and addresses both 60GHz and 80GHz markets. Part of the Xilnx SmartCORE™ IP portfolio, this solution consumes less than 5W of power at 1+Gbps data rates. By leveraging the 256 QAM millimeter wave modem IP solution, wireless OEMs can achieve quicker time-to-market at considerably lower cost investments while maintaining flexibility and platform scalability for future generation of products.

"Xilinx's 256 QAM millimeter wave modem IP solution enables us to expand our product line to support an array of emerging applications where low cost, high throughput point-to-multipoint connections are used," said Vents Lacars, vice president, business development for SAF Tehnika. "It's TDD multiplexing support is a rare additional feature which allows this IP to scale well from small footprint, low power solutions to high throughput wideband solutions. Having a flexible IP solution allows us to de-risk our developments and seamlessly react to changing market requirements."

"With more than 250 LTE networks rolled out globally today and 1 Billion connections expected to be established by 2017, we are in a period of unprecedented data growth, where wireless backhaul has a prominent role" said Tarmo Pihl, wireless marketing director for Xilinx. "The 256 QAM millimeter wave modem IP will scale from 1+Gbps data rates today, to 10Gbps in the future, and is designed to support the major shift and growth in mobile broadband traffic."

The highly configurable point-to-point and point-to-multipoint millimeter wave modem IP core incorporates all the key features and capabilities customers require to accelerate development of next-generation wireless solutions. Ideal for outdoor deployment, the modem IP offers a highly scalable solution from low power small cell backhaul to high throughput wireless front haul applications using a common platform. It also supports several IP configurations such as a modem with either RS FEC or LDPC FEC, CPRI for fronthaul or 10GbE interface for backhaul, and JESD204B for new generation of converter devices. The modem supports hitless and errorless adaptive modulation, analog imperfection compensation, TDD and FDD multiplexing technologies with higer layer protocol interface, and granular channel bandwidths. The low DSP latency makes this an ideal fit for wireless fronthaul applications with very stringent latency requirements.
