ADI develops O-RAN radio unit

ADI’s radio platform includes all the core functionality needed in an O-RAN compliant 5G radio unit, including a baseband ASIC, software defined transceivers, signal processing, and power.

The ADI platform allows radio designers and manufacturers to optimise total system performance for macro and small cell solutions. The reference design will enable designers to create O-RAN compliant radios with the use of:

• ADI’s next-generation transceiver featuring advanced digital front-end signal processing (DFE), digital pre-distortion with GaN PA support, crest factor reduction, channel digital up converters and channel digital down converters.

• A low-PHY baseband ASIC that delivers a 7.2x compliant solution for LTE, 5G and NBIoT, including IEEE1588 Precision Time Protocol and an eCPRI interface.

• Complete clock and power chain solutions.
