Unrelenting demand for data services have already caused some dense urban environments to run out of capacity leading to dropped connections and/or significant reductions in available data bandwidth. From operators to component vendors, the entire wireless infrastructure ecosystem now recognizes the need to deploy small cells within 3G/4G heterogeneous networks. In order to successfully deploy small cells, operators need to address issues related to frequency planning, network deployment, management and maintenance, backhaul and siting. Solutions from Scintera and Freescale can alleviate or completely solve the underlying technical challenges associated with most of the issues listed above including control of output spectrum (SEM and ACLR), low power consumption and dissipation (lower cost power supplies), smaller and lighter weight form factor (lower cost and volume enclosures), and long-term reliability (minimize and predict in-field failures).
Through their joint cooperation, Scintera and Freescale have ensured that their products deliver optimal performance when operated together enabling engineers to design highly effective and efficient small cell solutions ranging from low-power Power over Ethernet (PoE) indoor small cells to larger and high output power picocells. This webinar will, under various operating conditions, highlight the performance of Scintera’s latest generation RF PA Linearizer, SC1894, operating with Freescale’s small cell PAs including MD7IC2012, AFT26HW050 and MMZ09363B.
Mr. Ouzillou has over 25 years marketing, engineering management and system design experience. Before joining Scintera, Mr. Ouzillou was director of marketing for Telegent Systems that was later sold to Broadcom and Spreadtrum. Previously, he was the senior director of marketing at Impinj responsible for both RFID reader systems and tag ICs. Mr. Ouzillou also spent 6 years with Silicon Laboratories as a marketing manager responsible for various cellular RF products including the first CMOS GSM power amplifier for handsets. Over the course of nearly 5 years at National Instruments, he was the founder and R&D Group Manager for the Sound & Vibration Instrument group. Mr. Ouzillou also worked at the University of Texas Applied Research Laboratories where he designed parallel digital signal processing beam-forming systems for use in active SONAR by the US Navy. He has published numerous technical articles for various trade magazines and has been awarded five patents. Mr. Ouzillou holds a BSEE from the University of Texas at Austin.
Eric Westberg is a portfolio manager for cellular infrastructure RF products at Freescale Semiconductor. In addition to product management he has held engineering and management positions in application engineering, systems engineering and business development in the wireless and semiconductor industries. Eric earned his master’s degree in electrical engineering from Arizona State University and undergraduate degrees from Wheaton College and the Illinois Institute of Technology.
