Developments in integration for base station receivers

Keywords:Base station  macrocell  remote radio heads 

Base station designers are under constant pressure as the need for more bandwidth at a lower cost continuously increases. Many factors influence the overall cost to install and operate additional base stations to serve the increased demand. Smaller, lower power electronics within a macrocell base station help to lower the initial costs as well as the ongoing cost of real estate rental and electrical power consumption for the tower. New architectures such as remote radio heads (RRH) promise to decrease costs even further. Tiny picocell and femtocell base stations extend the services to areas not covered by the larger macrocells. To realise these gains, base station designers need new components with very high levels of integration and yet they cannot compromise performance.
