Metanoia’s MT2812 is a System on a Chip (SoC) that supports a wide range of wireless applications by converting multiple data formats to Ethernet medium. With a programmable modem that uses advanced DSP technology, dual RISC processors and integrated high speed data convertors, the MT2812 is ideal for converting packetized data to arbitrary wireless communication formats including 5G New Radio (5G NR).
The MT2812 SoC can be combined with the MT3812, Metanoia sub-6GHz RF transceivers and RF front end modules to build compact and highly flexible sub-6GHz 5G-NR Radio Units (RUs) systems. With most of the necessary building blocks provided by Metanoia, it is the most cost-effective and competitive solution to meet the needs of various market segments and operators in 5G network deployment.
- The MT2812 SoC supports a scalable architecture which can help in building higher density applications by using multiple instances of the chip.
Target Market Segments
- Sub-6GHz low density O-RAN RU market (1T1R up to 4T4R Low density RU)
- Complete end-to-end solution for 5G RU, including Digital Front-End (DFE) for Low-PHY, fronthaul interface as specified by O-RAN and also interface to sub-6GHz RF chip like Metanoia MT3812.
These are examples systems that can be built using MT2812.
