E-band Transceiver Modules

The use of E-band (71-86GHz) for mobile backhaul offers network operators advantages of both increased capacity (up to 10Gbps per channel) and reduced operating expense, benefiting from low cost licensing regimes available throughout the world.


Filtronic’s Ultra High Capacity E-band mmWave Modules are designed to deliver cost-effective, carrier class multi-Gigabit connectivity for mobile backhaul systems. Operating in the lightly licensed 71-76 and 81-86 GHz mmWave bands, our product’s high linearity transmit and receive chains and low phase noise local oscillators support spectrally efficient, high-level adaptive modulation which, together with automatic Tx power and Rx gain control, enable carrier-class performance to be maintained during the most challenging link fade conditions. Flexible channel widths from 62.5MHz up to 2000MHz can be accommodated in accordance with CEPT / ECC / Recommendation 05-07 facilitating operation at data rates up to 10Gbps per channel.

Utilising custom MMIC’s, the mmWave transceiver module is produced using Filtronic’s unique high-capacity fully automated chip-and-wire manufacturing technology. This offers customers the benefits of high reliability and low cost. Our self-contained, fully integrated module features baseband Tx/Rx inputs/outputs, integrated diplexer, frequency synthesis and an embedded microprocessor which takes care of all gain adjustments and frequency controls for simple integration into OEM Outdoor Units.
