Research and Markets: Semiconductors for Small Cells 2013-2014 with 5 Year Forecasts

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pwl74h/semiconductors) has announced the addition of the "Semiconductors for Small Cells 2013-2014" report to their offering.

This forecast shows the future of semiconductors for small cells, and describes the driving forces which will drive even more rapid growth in SoCs, transceivers, and power amplifiers than for the small cells themselves.

The report includes:

  • A five-year forecast for consumer, enterprise and carrier femtocells, along with picocells, metrocells, and Low Power RRH.
  • A five year-forecast for semiconductors to support small cells, including:
  • Baseband System-on-a-Chip (SoC) Processors
  • RF Transceivers
  • Power Amplifiers ranging from GaAs to LDMOS and GaN
  • Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD) and Analog Pre-Distortion (APD) solutions
  • Filters
  • TCXO, OCXO, and synchronization solutions
  • Multiband, Multimode, MIMO, and WiFi requirements entering the small cell market
