SnowWings is a cutting-edge mixed-signal transceiver designed for the advanced wireless market. Its unique digital RF sampling architecture allows for low power and adaptable radio platform development. With its inherent multi-standard architecture and exceptional performance, SnowWings can support licensed and unlicensed 5G NR bands, WiFi bands as well as 4G LTE bands of up to 7.2GHz.
Improved power efficiency of 70-80% . This improvement is done through innovative architecture design, sophisticated analog circuit design, high level of digital integration and a clear focus on low power circuit design. This low power consumption approach based on Arctic’s revolutionary and patented Hardware Intelligent Circuits or “HIC” technology leads to lower cost in radio development for enterprise, macro base station, devices and small cell applications.
Another key benefit is providing hardware design flexibility by offering multi-band support. This product’s unique design provides a single pluggable chip supporting all sub-6GHz bands including CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service). Combined with digital signal processing, including DPD, DDC, DUC, and CFR, SnowWings simplifies system development for all applications.
