Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) and Intel have collaborated to create an end-to-end small cell radio development kit, called the Pico Radio Enablement Platform. This easy to assemble platform directly connects ADI’s Madura Sub-6 GHz development kit to the Intel® Arria® system on a chip (SoC) development board. The platform supports all sub 6GHz radio frequency bands, providing a programmable platform for all 5G and software-defined radio (SDR) applications. With a 7.2 functional split, it is O-RAN compliant. The platform can be connected to a PC, and includes a graphical user interface (GUI) that customers can use to configure the hardware platform. The Pico Radio Enablement Platform helps speed prototyping and testing and can significantly decrease time to market for new RRH architectures.
