Scintera Technology Selected for LTE Infrastructure Rollout in Korea
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Scintera Networks, Inc., a leading provider of mixed signal semiconductors for wireless communications, today announced that Scintera’s RF Power Amplifier Linearization (RFPAL) technology has been selected for use in wireless infrastructure systems as part of Korea Telecom’s (KT) deployment of 4G LTE services.
Scintera’s SC1889 and SC1887 products are being deployed by KT in its latest 3G and 4G infrastructure RF remote radio units. These radio units are used to provide new 4G LTE services while maintaining support for existing 3G systems. Scintera’s technology enabled KT’s suppliers to rapidly develop power efficient and cost effective radio units while meeting their stringent performance and quality requirements. These systems will allow KT to quickly deploy its LTE network and expand coverage for subscribers throughout Korea.
“We are pleased to be incorporated in the initial rollout of KT’s LTE network,” said Davin Lee, chief executive officer of Scintera. “The selection of Scintera by key telecom vendors such as KT for critical infrastructure systems demonstrates the growing acceptance of our unique approach to transmitter linearization. Our customers are increasingly taking advantage of the significant lower cost and simplicity as we continue to see increasing traction in small cell transmitters required for global deployment of LTE networks.”
Scintera’s RFPAL technology is in full production with both the SC1889 and SC1887. These solutions enable wireless infrastructure vendors to rapidly develop efficient linear transmitters necessary for 3G and 4G cellular networks. Implemented in standard CMOS, Scintera’s architecture offers significant cost and time-to-market advantages over competing solutions without compromises in performance. It is the only solution implementing a complete RF power amplifier (PA) linearization system in a single system-on-a-chip (SoC).
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.
