"Our recently announced Layerscape Access processors offer the flexibility and performance required to enable rapid 5G deployments. By integrating IQ-Analog's 4 and 16 Giga-sample per second (Gsps) high-speed converter technology, we are also able to deliver a more differentiated 5G solution for our OEM customers," said Tareq Bustami, senior vice president and general manager of NXP's Digital Networking Solutions. "The performance benefits of these highly integrated solutions manifest in scalable architectures for small cell and mmWave products."
"Data converters are the bridge between antenna panels and digital processors. Efficient high-speed data converter technology is the dominant barrier limiting the expansion of 5G equipment. Our patented Traveling Pulse Wave Quantization technology offers fundamental advantages over commercially available high-speed data conversion systems. Matured in FinFET CMOS, our technology allows for cost effective monolithic integration of high-speed data conversion and digital signal processing as exemplified in our wideband transceiver products and NXP's Layerscape Access family of 5G processors," said Michael Kappes, CEO, IQ-Analog Corporation.
