Industry Voices—Madden: A shake-up is coming to RRH semiconductors for LTE base stations | FierceWireless
"In the market for mobile infrastructure, the change to Massive MIMO is shaking up the established order. Comfortable players like Xilinx and Analog Devices are developing radically different and new semiconductor modules to capture a larger share of the future market, with higher levels of integration. As one simple example, we will see integration of data converters with the digital front end, to cut power consumption by 40%. The size of the radio will shrink by 70% or more, so that the OEMs can line up 64 radios together in a Massive MIMO array. It’s not your father’s base station anymore."

"For the 80-100 chip vendors that support the RRH, this year is a critical time. Each supplier must choose a direction for 2018-2019 products, and the uncertainty around 16T16R or 128T128R is paralyzing many of them. But there’s no time to wait: The wide bandwidth and high performance required in 5G will drive a new profit cycle in RF semiconductors, so chip vendors can’t miss the 2019-2020 wave of deployment."
