The MaxLinear MxL11xx is an all-CMOS, single-chip broadband microwave transceiver product family that can support operation of all licensed and unlicensed bands from 5GHz to 45GHz, including all ETSI-defined channel spacing options from 5MHz to 112MHz. Single or dual-channel operational modes are available.
The comprehensive frequency support of the MxL11xx greatly reduces the number of product configurations that customers must develop. The high level of integration also greatly minimizes external bill of material content, while supporting advanced features like digital pre-distortion, and channel aggregation and calibration. The channel aggregation feature is ideal for 5G backhaul applications, doubling the available
capacity on a single backhaul link The MxL11xx features built-in Full Spectrum Capture™ (FSC™) technology and supports channel aggregation mode, enabling a second channel with any channel spacing to be processed within the same IC.
The MxL11xx incorporates a full receive, transmit, feedback path, and all synthesizer components on a single chip, and can support code rates up to 4096 QAM. The closed-loop and open loop digital predistortion provides power amplifier (PA) linearization for a wide variety of PAs.
