Hittite Microwave and Xilinx Demonstrate Complete Radio Solutions at MTT-S Tampa June 3-5, 2014

Hittite Microwave Corporation (NASDAQ:HITT) and Xilinx, Inc. today announced that they will demonstrate complete radio solutions for 60 GHz millimeter wave small cell backhaul and 1024QAM microwave radio cellular backhaul at MTT-S June 3-5 in Tampa, Florida.

The Complete 60GHz Small Cell Backhaul Demonstration:

Hittite’s 60GHz SiGe transceiver chip set interfaces directly to the Xilinx 256 QAM Millimeter Wave ModemSmartCORE™ IP to support up to 750 Mbps data throughput capacity and configurable channel bandwidths from 50 to 250MHz with FDD and TDD modes to formulate an ideal lower power consumption small cell backhaul radio solution. Hittite’s 60GHz transceiver chip set is a complete millimeter wave to baseband solution. The transceiver incorporates universal IQ interfacesfor direct modulation and demodulation and chip set implements theentire transmitter and receiver chains with on-chip frequency synthesizers, frequency converters and the transmit power amplifier and receive low noise amplifier.Hittite will release its next generation 60 GHz transmitter and receiver chipset later this year with increased output power (>15 dBm), a new frequency synthesizer with support for 64-QAM modulation and covering 57-66 GHz in 250 MHz step size, an integrated power detector, analog or digital gain control, all in 4x6 mm surface mount packages.

Xilinx’s 256-QAM millimeter wave modem, part of Xilinx SmartCORE IP portfolio, is highly configurable point to point and point to multipoint capable modem.It consumes less than 5W of power at >1 Gbps data rates and incorporates all the key features and capabilities customers require to accelerate development of next generation backhaul solutions. It supports RS and LDPC FEC, CPRI for fronthaul or 10GbE for backhaul, as well as the JESD204B interface for emerging data converter devices. The core can be extended to support also wider band supports such as 500MHz with up to 3.5Gbps throughput.

The 1024QAM Microwave Radio Split-Mount Outdoor Unit (ODU) Backhaul Demonstration:

Hittite’s transceiver chip sets interfaces directly to the Xilinx QPSK to 1024QAM SmartCOREIP Modem to construct a fully functional Split-Mount Outdoor Unit (ODU) microwave radio.Hittite’s 6-42GHz transceiver chip set is a simplified, cost effective solution consisting of highly integrated IF transceiver ICs, high linearity microwave IQ transmitter and receiver ICs, low phase noisemicrowave synthesizers ICs and the transmit power amplifier, all with industry leading performance and surface mount packaging.

The Xilinx modem implements all the features of a modern microwave radio backhaul including QPSK to 1024QAM modulation with software configurable bandwidths from 3.5-112MHz. The modem supports Gigabit Ethernet with software configurable features including closed loop digital pre-distortion, automatic correction of TX and RX IQ impairments, equalization, XPIC and ATCP configuration support.
