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, integrated high speed data convertors and dual RISC processors, 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 RF transceivers and RF front end modules to build compact and highly flexible sub-6GHz 5G-NR Radio Units (RUs), small cells systems and customer premises equipment (CPE). 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.
he MT2812 SoC supports a scalable architecture which can help in building higher density applications by using multiple instances of the chip.
