Research and Markets: Semiconductors for RRH (FPGA, SoC, LDMOS, DAC, ADC, RF): Detailed Analysis for Macro Base Station Transceivers

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Semiconductors for RRH (FPGA, SoC, LDMOS, DAC, ADC, RF)" report to their offering.

The 64-page report provides a detailed analysis of the semiconductors inside macro base station transceivers, including:

  • The impact of increasing bandwidth, Carrier Aggregation, Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) and other LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) features on the block diagram
  • The effect of Systems on a Chip (SoCs) and transceivers developed for small cells, and their migration into macrocell systems
  • Cost estimates for each semiconductor device in a Remote Radio Head (RRH)
  • Market share and competitive dynamics for ASICs, FPGAs, DSP/SoCs, power transistors, data converters, PLLs, VCOs, quadrature modulators (AQMs), and small signal RF components
  • A five-year forecast of mobile transceivers and the supporting semiconductor devices
  • Profiles for the key semiconductor suppliers in the radio chain
  • A supporting Excel spreadsheet with detailed analysis down to various power levels, single and multimode radios, and analysis of migration between devices types such as ASIC/SoC/FPGA and LDMOS/GaN.
