Xilinx and NEC Accelerate Next-Generation 5G Radio Units for Global Deployment

Sep 23, 2021 5G radio units to incor짯po짯ra짯te the Xilinx 7nm Ver짯sal AI Core series, enab짯ling breakth짯rough signal pro짯ces짯sing for mas짯si짯ve MIMO beam짯forming with ORAN interfaces

SAN JOSE, Calif. & TOKYO(BUSINESS WIRE) Xilinx, Inc., (NASDAQ: XLNX), a lea짯der in adap짯ti짯ve com짯pu짯ting, and NEC Cor짯po짯ra짯ti짯on (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announ짯ced that the com짯pa짯nies are col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ting on NEC셲 next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on 5G radio units (RUs) expec짯ted to be available for glo짯bal deploy짯ment in 2022. Xilinx짰 7nm Ver짯sal짰 AI Core series devices, which are curr짯ent짯ly ship짯ping in volu짯me pro짯duc짯tion, will enable grea짯ter per짯for짯mance in the new NEC RUs.

The짯se latest NEC 5G mas짯si짯ve MIMO RUs uti짯li짯ze digi짯tal beam짯forming for more effi짯ci짯ent com짯mu짯ni짯ca짯ti짯on and wider band짯width. Desi짯gned to address world짯wi짯de mar짯kets, NEC RUs will sup짯port a wide ran짯ge of 5G fre짯quen짯ci짯es, inclu짯ding C멊and. The Xilinx Ver짯sal AI Core series devices used within the NEC RUs enable advan짯ced signal pro짯ces짯sing and beam짯forming, while also inte짯gra짯ting ORAN capa짯bi짯li짯ties. ORAN inter짯faces enable open and fle짯xi짯ble 5G RAN deploy짯ments, in addi짯ti짯on to allo짯wing broa짯der inter짯ope짯ra짯bi짯li짯ty with pro짯ducts from dif짯fe짯rent vendors.

NEC셲 new mas짯si짯ve MIMO radi짯os using Xilinx셲 com짯mer짯ci짯al짯ly-pro짯ven beam짯forming capa짯bi짯li짯ties will enable an impro짯ved wire짯less end-user expe짯ri짯ence as use cases con짯ti짯nue to grow and evol짯ve in the future, said Liam Mad짯den, exe짯cu짯ti짯ve vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Wired and Wire짯less Group at Xilinx. 쏷he com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on of NEC셲 lea짯der짯ship in mas짯si짯ve MIMO radio design and Xilinx tech짯no짯lo짯gy will deli짯ver a com짯pel짯ling solu짯ti짯on to the ORAN market.

In the high짯ly com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯ve 5G base sta짯ti짯on mar짯ket, the inte짯gra짯ti짯on of Xilinx tech짯no짯lo짯gy within NEC RUs will pro짯vi짯de valuable advan짯ta짯ges to our cus짯to짯mers who demand high짯ly-capa짯ble and fea짯ture-rich RUs that deli짯ver the per짯for짯mance nee짯ded to sca짯le for near짯ly any appli짯ca짯ti짯on, said Keni짯chi Ito, gene짯ral mana짯ger, 1st Wire짯less Access Solu짯ti짯ons Divi짯si짯on at NEC. 쏷he Xilinx Ver짯sal AI Core series deli짯vers on its design pro짯mi짯se for per짯for짯mance and sca짯la짯bi짯li짯ty by using advan짯ced signal-pro짯ces짯sing for mas짯si짯ve MIMO anten짯nas and beam짯forming. We look for짯ward to con짯ti짯nuing our col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with Xilinx.
