Digital Front-End Processors

Wireless infrastructure operators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) continue to demand expanded capacity, performance and flexibility in network planning and management. It has become a necessity to offer cost-effective solutions that provide a smooth transition from 2G to 3G and 4G protocols, support for wider bandwidths to support fragmented spectrum for a single operator or even sharing infrastructure between operators, and highest efficiency to keep power consumption to a minimum. Broadcom Digital Front-End (DFE) Processor solutions meet these demands for everything from Macrocell down to Picocell base station implementations. Only Broadcom's Universal DFE™ technology adapts in real time to linearize any type or combination of signals (2G, 3G, or 4G) on any type of power amplifier (PA) (AB, Doherty, Envelope Tracking, etc.) on any PA transistor technology (LDMOS, GaS, GaN, etc.) while supporting the widest bandwidth and highest efficiency in the industry. Broadcom Universal DFE technology increases flexibility and improves time to market to address new market opportunities and significantly lowers total cost of ownership for next generation wireless infrastructure solutions.
