Avnet and Fujikura have collaborated on a 5G FR2 phased array antenna improvement platform for mmWave frequency bands. The platform permits engineers to develop and prototype 5G mmWave methods based mostly on the AMD-Xilinx Zyng UltraScale+ RFSoC Gen3 gadget and Fujikura’s FutureAccess phased array antenna module (PAAM). Avnet’s RFSoC Explorer software program, a local MATLAB software, is used for configuring and controlling the digital and RF settings.
Appropriate for each indoor and out of doors purposes, the Fujikura PAAM operates within the 3GPP FR2 frequency bands n257 (28 GHz), n258 (26 GHz), and n261 (27 GHZ). The calibration-free module integrates an 8×8 antenna ingredient, proprietary RFICs, and a filter. It additionally supplies quick beam switching at <200 ns, together with command transaction time. Energy consumption throughout transmission and reception is 16 W and seven W, respectively.
The PAAM improvement board groups with the AMD-Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC ZCU208 analysis package. This OEM package deal incorporates a base board populated with the Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC ZU48DR with built-in gigasample knowledge converters and programmable acquire management. As well as, the baseboard is bundled with an add-on clock board, breakout board, and N79 band loopback board.
The Avnet-Fujikura 5G mmWave PAAM improvement package is scheduled to be obtainable in Q1 2023. For extra data and to request early entry, click on right here.
