Filtronic Showcases its E-band Transceivers at IMS 2020

Filtronic is a designer and manufacturer of advanced RF communications products supplying leading Original Equipment Manufacturers and Mobile Network Operators in the mobile telecommunications network infrastructure and critical communications markets. As part of the Virtual IMS Event, they are showcasing their Hercules, Morpheus II, and Orpheus E-band transceivers at their booth.

Hercules E-band Transceiver

The Hercules transceiver is a turn-key solution for ultra-high power high capacity E-band links, combining Filtronic’s Orpheus and Cerus modules. Each Orpheus module contains all the transmit and receive functions necessary for the RF section of an E-band link and provides a simple connection to a high data rate full-duplex modem. The integration of a Cerus power amplifier significantly increases the available transmit power. The integrated diplexer connects directly to an antenna of choice via a standard WR12 interface. Internal, low phase noise VCOs are settable via an SPI interface in 31.25 MHz steps to support ECC/ITU channel arrangements. Key features of this product include:

  • Fully integrated 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz modules, including E-band HPAs.
  • Ultra-High Tx output power.
  • Supports up to 2 GHz RF channels.
  • Low phase noise – 112 dBc/Hz at 1MHz.
  • Supports 256 QAM modulation.
  • Integrated diplexer.
  • Single T/R port for antenna interface.
  • 100% tested.
  • Highly linear Rx and Tx.
  • Fully calibrated modules ready for radio insertion.
  • Eliminates the need for investment in mmWave expertise, or mmWave test development.

Morpheus II E-band Transceiver

Morpheus II E-band Transceiver modules provide a turn key solution for carrier-grade mobile XHaul applications. Each module contains all the transmit and receive functions necessary for the RF selection of an E-band link and provides a simple connection to a high data rate full-duplex modem. Key features of this product include:

  • Fully integrated 71-76 to 81-86 GHz TRx modules.
  • Reconfigurable architecture with options up to 27 dBm Psat.
  • Supports up to 2 GHz channel bandwidth.
  • Low phase noise - 112 dBc/Hz at 1MHz.
  • Supports up to 512 QAM modulation.
  • Integrated diplexer.
  • Single T/R port for antenna interface.
  • Single connector for modem interface.
  • 100 % calibrated and tested.
  • Compact low mass form factor.

 Orpheus E-band Transceiver

  • The Orpheus is a high-performance ODU-Ready E-Band Transceiver with fully integrated 71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz modules. 
  • It has been developed as a turn-key solution for ultra-high capacity macrocell backhaul and fronthaul for C-RAN (Centralized Radio Access Networks). 
  • Each module contains all the transmit and receive functions necessary for the RF section of an E-band link and provides a simple connection to a high data rate full-duplex modem.
  • The integrated diplexer connects directly to an antenna of choice via a standard WR12 interface. Internal, low phase noise VCOs are settable via an SPI interface in 31.25 MHz steps to support ECC/ITU channel arrangements.
