SiTune Joins O-RAN Alliance
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

-- Enabling the most power and cost optimized "Intelligent Radio Unit" for the 
next generation 5G mobile networks

SiTune, an innovator of multiple generations of state-of-the-art RF and 
Mixed-signal System on a Chip, today announced that it has joined Open Radio 
Access Network (O-RAN) Alliance. O-RAN Alliance is a global community of mobile 
service providers and technology suppliers driving the re-structure of RAN to 
elevate openness, virtualization, and intelligence for better multi-vendor 
interoperability of network equipment.

The group is advocating for the future Radio Access Networks to be "built on a 
foundation of virtualized network elements, white-box hardware and standardized 
interfaces that fully embrace O-RAN's core principles of intelligence and 
openness." The O-RAN Alliance's objective is to enable network operators and 
private enterprises to select top-of-the-line components individually and 
utilize network equipment with the highest level of performance and lowest cost.

Optimizing Radio Units (RUs) in terms of cost, power consumption, flexibility 
and performance is essential in enabling the deployment of open networks. 
SiTune's recently announced transceiver chipsets, IceWings(TM) and 
SnowWings(TM) are scalable solutions providing game changing merits in 
realizing energy and cost efficient 5G solutions. These transceivers based on 
SiTune's patented revolutionary Hardware Intelligent Circuits, HIC(TM), 
technology are poised to accelerate the development of RUs while simplifying 
RAN architecture.

"SiTune brings to the O-RAN Alliance ecosystem, the unique multi-standard and 
ultra-wide-band transceiver chipsets that are the critical components of the 
Radio Unit," said Raghu Rao, VP of Sales and Business Development. 
"SnowWings(TM) based on Digital RF technology and IceWings(TM) based on analog 
RF technology are derived from a unique, patented ultra-wide-band technology 
empowered by HIC(TM) which has been used and perfected in multiple generations 
of SiTune's products. These products support all 5G/4G mobile bands in a 
single-die and provide up to 80% of energy savings as well as considerable cost 
efficiency and flexibility."

SiTune is currently partnering closely with multiple industry leaders across 
the value chain to provide the best-in-class 5G RU solutions.
