Xilinx and BEEcube Deliver World's First Millimeter Wave Prototyping Platform Solution for Pioneering Development of 5G Applications

Xilinx 256QAM millimeter wave modem IP integrated on the BEEcube BEE7 baseband platform provides complete "out of the box" solution for wideband backhaul prototyping

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 17, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) and BEEcube today announced they have delivered the world's first millimeter wave (mmWave) prototyping platform solution for pioneering development of 5G applications. Xilinx's newest 256QAM 500MHz mmWave modem IP coupled with the BEEcube BEE7 baseband platform provides a complete "out of the box" solution addressing the 60GHz backhaul market thereby enabling designers to work on innovative mmWave designs immediately.

"5G will increase cellular network capacity by a factor of 1,000 and the use of mmWave frequencies is critical to address the growing need," said Dr. Bob Brodersen, Co-Founder Berkeley Wireless Research Center and Chairman of the Board at BEEcube. "Existing tools for prototyping at mmWave frequencies are very limited and do not offer good integration. With no competing offerings in this frequency range, the introduction of this mmWave prototyping solution fills a huge gap as companies race to prototype 5G systems."

The integrated BEEcube BEE7 baseband platform connects to two 60GHz wideband transceivers and phased-array antennas enhancing the performance by virtue of increased absolute frequency range and channel bandwidth. In addition, the highly configurable point-to-point 500MHz mmWave modem IP from Xilinx includes, among other features, adaptive modulation and bandwidth, high-performance LDPC FEC, adaptive DPD, I/Q imbalance correction, automatic frequency recovery, a hybrid decision-directed equalizer, and supports speeds up to 3.5Gbps in single polarization mode.

"This solution provides the key features and capabilities customers need to accelerate development of next-generation wireless solutions," said Sunil Kar, vice president of wireless communications at Xilinx. "Xilinx and BEEcube will continue to collaborate to produce scalable platforms with maximum digital integration to help our mutual customers address evolving backhaul needs for future technologies such as 5G."

Xilinx and BEEcube representatives will be available at Mobile World Congress, March 2-5, 2015 to discuss this new prototyping platform. For inquiries or to schedule a meeting, contact David Hawke at Email Contact or David Squires at Email Contact.
