Xilinx and Sumitomo Electric announce collaboration

Xilinx announced that Xilinx and Sumitomo Electric Industries are collaborating to bring smarter solutions to market. These solutions reduce CapEx and OpEx costs through the use of Sumitomo Electric's Gallium Nitride power amplifier transistors and Xilinx SmartCORE IP that result in higher radio unit efficiencies. Wireless system designers using Xilinx's SmartCORE IP can scale to support small cells to high-end macro cells, as well as active antenna systems, offering customers time-to-market advantages, lower development costs, high efficiency, lower SWaP, and lower total cost.
