Aviat and MaxLinear, a leading provider of digital, high-performance integrated circuits, are long-standing partners. MaxLinear modems are an integral part of Aviat’s wireless backhaul and transport products, including Eclipse, CTR 8000, and WTM 4000.
The two companies recently signed a new agreement which will shape the future of wireless transport systems. Their close collaboration will result in development of an innovative fully integrated MxL852xx System on a Chip (SoC), the most advanced technology Modem ever conceived. It will provide Aviat with the power to deliver ultra-high capacity, multi-Gigabit links over longer distances and at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than ever before, for microwave (MW), millimeter-wave (MMW) and Multi-Band (MB) applications, covering frequency bands from 5 all the way up to 170 GHz, including the future W- and D-Bands.
Aviat’s well-established product development strategy is to build the best possible systems through collaboration with chip suppliers, rather than internally developing ASICs. This strategy has proven success, most recently with the WTM 4000 radio platform, which is the only all-outdoor single-box dual transceiver MW/MMW/MB platform.
The MxL852xx incorporates the latest 14 nanometer technology and support for six cores in a single chip, which will be the most powerful Modem SoC on the market, with leading spectral efficiency, low-latency, and reduced power consumption. The MxL852xx will also support wider microwave channels, higher speed interfaces, higher throughput capacity, and critical legacy TDM traffic to enable a smoother transition to all-IP for network operators.
