Xilinx All Programmable Devices Enabling ZTE Pre5G 3D/Massive MIMO Base Station

28nm Kintex-7 devices at the core of record setting compact 64-port, 128 antenna ZTE system

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 3, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced its All Programmable devices are enabling ZTE's pre5G 3D/massive MIMO base station. Comprising 128 antennas, ZTE's massive MIMO system uses a frontal area similar to existing 8-antennas systems. Integrating antennas, base station units and RFs in one module, ZTE's Massive MIMO base station uses only one-third of the installation space of traditional systems, lowering operating costs and total cost ownership of operators. At the core of this solution are Xilinx® 28nm Kintex®-7 devices, offering industry-leading digital front end processing and advanced baseband algorithm implementation to compliment the functionality of ZTE's high-performance vector processor SoC.

"Together, our pre5G multi-user/multi-stream spacial multiplexing technology and Xilinx 7 series FPGAs are enabling our base station to set new records in single-carrier transmission capacity and spectral efficiency," said Dr. Jiying XIANG, CTO of ZTE Wireless Division. "Xilinx FPGAs are the ideal platform to support the requirements of our pre5G systems and we look forward to utilizing their next-generation UltraScale™ devices to further enhance the performance of our base stations."

"Massive MIMO is seen as one of the most important technologies for increased 5G wireless system data throughput and capacity," said Sunil Kar, vice president of wireless communications at Xilinx. "Xilinx's high-performance fabric and high-speed I/Os directly address the critical requirements for these next-generation antennas system and Xilinx is pleased to be working with ZTE in the continued development of 5G technology."
