New SOI Technology Opportunities

Industry Thought Leaders, System Designers and Curious Engineers Invited to Consider 5G Possibilities

SAN DIEGO – May 3, 2022 – pSemi® Corporation, a Murata company focused on semiconductor integration, announces its sponsorship of a Microwave Journal webinar titled “New Opportunities for SOI Technology in 5G Massive MIMO Base Stations.” pSemi’s technical director of RFIC design, Payman Shanjani, will deliver the presentation on Thursday, May 26 at 8 a.m. PST/ 11 a.m. EST.

New SOI Technology Opportunities

5G Massive MIMO Webinar

As more 5G massive MIMO base stations replace remote radio units (RRU), it creates new opportunities to leverage silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology to reduce cost and power consumption while improving performance and integrability. Unlike traditional base stations that require high-breakdown voltage technologies, massive MIMO structures utilize many RF lines with lower power transmitters and higher isolation requirements. This transition makes SOI the most suitable solution for both sub-6 GHz and mmWave active antenna systems (AAS).

This webinar will address:

  • Benefits and challenges of massive MIMO versus traditional RRU base stations
  • System and specification requirements of RF building blocks
  • Opportunities for utilizing SOI technology in RF components
  • How to leverage SOI to realize hybrid beamforming and phase-shifting topologies
  • Practical examples of existing SOI-based RF components utilized in AAS

After the live webinar, a video recording will be available on the Microwave Journal website in the events section.
