Mobile Experts released a report that predicts a new future for base station semiconductors. In particular, the number of base station transceivers will grow to more than 17 million per year by 2017. Increasing bandwidth requirements, MIMO, and carrier aggregation will drive growth in key semiconductor components. The new report, "Semiconductors for Macro Transceivers and RRH," gives a detailed analysis of these trends.
A U.S. election year combined with uncertain European financial fundamentals has clouded the economic outlook for the North American market. However, mobile operators are busily preparing their networks for next generation 4G services. “North American mobile cellular capital expenditure is expected to hold its ground in 2012 year-on-year, with expenditure of around US$ 10 billion”, said Jake Saunders, VP for forecasting at ABI Research.
RF Micro Devices Inc. announced the release of four high-performance front end modules (FEMs) for next generation WiFi applications. The RFMD® RFFM8200, RFFM8500, RFFM8202, and RFFM8502 are highly integrated FEM solutions covering multiple WiFi standards and frequency bands, particularly IEEE802.11n and the emerging 802.11ac specification. RFMD’s FEMs achieve industry-leading linear power and dynamic error vector magnitude (EVM) performance in support of the newest reference designs from the world’s leading WiFi chipset providers.
Astrium continues to drive the implementation of the European Data Relay System (EDRS). As prime contractor, Astrium Services has contracted the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) to implement and operate major parts of the ground network.
