Scintera Networks Engages with Freescale for Low Power Small Cell RF
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 5, 2013
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Scintera Networks, Inc.
announces that it has engaged with Freescale Semiconductor® (NYSE: FSL), a
leading provider of RF power solutions for wireless communications, to enable
low power and cost-efficient solutions for the small cell base station market.
As part of the engagement, Freescale will design and optimize new small cell
RF power amplifier devices and evaluation boards for operation with Scintera's
RFPAL products. The engagement provides Freescale and their customers with
preferred access to Scintera's RFPAL products.
As small cell deployments rise worldwide to help support exponential increases
in worldwide IP traffic, system power requirements have grown dramatically
stringent. Scintera's innovative RFPAL technology handles pre-distortion tasks
with an analog solution, which consumes substantially less power than digital
pre-distortion solutions. Due to the higher power efficiency, RFPAL enables
small cell wireless infrastructure equipment to operate within extremely
aggressive power envelopes, ultimately allowing networking equipment to
operate at a fraction of the power of current generation systems.
"Network operators are demanding smaller and more power-efficient base
stations in order to facilitate the deployment and maintenance of their
heterogeneous network infrastructure," said Ritu Favre, Senior Vice President
and General Manager of Freescale's RF Group. "Freescale's own market-leading
small cell power amplifiers coupled with Scintera Networks' innovative
linearization products will support and accelerate the development of
cost-effective small cell solutions to meet those demands."
"Scintera Networks and Freescale share a common vision in addressing the small
cell base station market," said Davin Lee, chief executive officer of
Scintera. "The cooperative agreement represents an important endorsement of
our company and our products. Scintera's family of RF PA linearizers (RFPAL)
is ideally suited for small cells as evidenced by the increasing number of
design wins and PA developments that are specifically optimized to operate
with RFPAL. Working with Freescale, a recognized leader in the cellular PA
market, will further accelerate this trend to the benefit of our joint
customers, network operators and ultimately subscribers."
Scintera is an industry leader in delivering high performance, compact and
very low-power system-on-chip solutions to measure, modify and monitor RF
signals and systems. The company's programmable analog signal processing
architecture effectively combines digital programmability with the simplicity,
small size and low power consumption of analog circuit processing. The first
products to leverage this innovative architecture are its family of adaptive
RF predistortion linearizers. Scintera is privately held and is headquartered
in Sunnyvale, California. For further information, please visit
