Integrated Device Technology, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation. announced its newest RapidWave product, the the RWM6051, a millimeter wave (mmWave) modem for customer premise equipment (CPE) targeted for 5G fixed wireless networks. The RWM6051 comprehensive features deliver wireless broadband service providers an ultra-wideband spectrum of 14 GHz V-band from 57 to 71 GHz to simplify and accelerate network deployments.
The RapidWave products operate in the unlicensed spectrum, permitting any wireless carrier, wireless ISP, or cable operator to quickly deploy a mmWave fixed wireless network that supports unprecedented bandwidth. Deploying a high capacity, self-organized fixed wireless network utilizing 14 GHz of spectrum is now easier than ever with RWM6051’s unique technologies, such as autonomous beamforming, multiple-carriers-in-channel, link adaption, and co-channel interference mitigation algorithms to simplify frequency and network planning in densely distributed networks.
The RWM6051 features a high degree of configurability with flexible channelization modes and modulation coding to scale bandwidth up to multi-gigabit data rates. Internally, the RapidWave mode includes the mixed-signal front-end resulting in an integration strategy that delivers the most cost-effective and power-efficient solution.
The RWM6051 incorporates technology licensed from and developed in collaboration with Blu Wireless Technology. Blu Wireless Technology provides Typhoon Development Platforms for the IDT RWM6051. Typhoon is a family of highly programmable wireless communication modules that leverage the IDT RWM6051 device.
