The global base transmitting station (BTS) transceiver (TRx) market grew by 87% in units in 2013 and was the most ever recorded, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global BTS Transceiver Market Analysis and Forecast, 10th Edition, 2013-2018.”
Crystek's CVCO55CC-2700-2700 voltage controlled oscillator (VCO) operates at 2700 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 ~4.5 V. This VCO features a typical phase noise of -118 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz offset and has excellent linearity. Output power is typically +7 dBm.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., has launched an extended version of its TM500 industry-standard base station tester capable of emulating several thousand LTE user equipments (UE), fading channel models, and LTE-A carrier aggregation functionality in a one-box benchtop unit. The TM500 Test Mobile delivers more leading edge LTE-A development capability with a higher UE density than any other solution on the market.
Mobile Experts released its 2014 mobile infrastructure forecast, which provides detailed analysis of Transceivers for Macro Base Stations. This in-depth forecast provides details on the dramatic changes under the surface of this flat market.
Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. announced the development of circuit technology that enables industry-leading electrical efficiency (the ratio between output power and consumed power) for wireless transmission power amplifiers used in radio-frequency wireless devices, such as mobile phone base stations.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a leading RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, introduced its first integrated power amplifier solution for ‘small cell’ and active antenna base stations that dramatically reduces board space while delivering high efficiency. Small cell solutions are key components in 3G/4G mobile networks including LTE.
Mobile Experts has released updated base station and transceiver forecasts, which indicate a major disruption in the market for China Mobile TD-LTE production. RF semiconductor suppliers are ramping up production which corresponds with delivery of 207,000 TD-LTE base stations. However, despite widespread media reports that 200,000 base stations will be deployed during 2013, industry semiconductor suppliers indicate that production and deployment limitations will stretch deliveries over a period of roughly 18 months.
