Filtronic E-band Transceiver Modules Provide Data Rates of up to 10 Gbps

At IMS 2019 in Boston, Filtronic will be showcasing its range of E-band radio transceiver modules which can provide a data rate of up to 10 Gbps.

The Orpheus from Filtronic 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.

Morpheus is a turn-key solution for capacity data links - supports 10 Gbps. Each module contains all the transmit and receive functions necessary for the RF section of an E-band link and has a simple modem interface.
