NewEdge Signal Solutions Unveils Next Generation Wireless Communications Capabilities at EDI-CON 2016 in Beijing

Date: April 25, 2016

At the recent EDI-CON conference in Beijing, NewEdge debuted a number of next generation wireless communications capabilities and products. Key among these was a high efficiency multi-mode, multi-band RF PA module as showcased on the Richardson RFPD booth. This module demonstrates NewEdge RF front end design capabilities, with the ability to handle multiple waveform types from GSM to LTE and operate over a frequency range of 1.8-2.7GHz. With commercial small cells being the initial target market, the module as shown was configured as a 2 x 2 MIMO system with an LTE output power of 7W (RMS) per PA. In addition to RF PA modules, the NewEdge also presented a range of digitally tunable filters operating over the 728-960MHz and 1.8-2.7GHz ranges.
