The partnership will combine digital networking and signal processing portfolio from NXP with Movandi’s RF transceiver and systems architecture to deliver high-performance 5G as well as the wireless communications infrastructure for applications such as smart homes, self-driving cars and future mobile cloud-based services.
5G is set for rapid deployment, but to meet the requirements of very low latency, high bandwidth, greater availability, faster speeds, and consistent coverage, it must overcome challenges such as line of site and blocking, high path loss and self-install issues. The technology must also deliver reduced lag time between devices and cell towers while ensuring constant connectivity and total geographic coverage, even in the most remote, hard-to-reach indoor areas.
NXP and Movandi are working to solve these impediments with high-speed communication systems that combine each company’s expertise and technology.
