5G Radio Unit Basestation
5G Radio Unit Basestation


With an increasing demand for cloud connectivity and 5G technology, energy consumption for next-generation telecom infrastructure is multiplying. 5G base stations and Radio units consume more than twice the amount of power consumed by 4G base stations, driving an increasing need for higher efficiency in power management and distribution for telecom infrastructure. onsemi is developing innovative technologies and solutions to tackle this challenge by improving overall system performance and achieving higher energy savings.

onsemi’s comprehensive bandgap product family of Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFETs help reduce power losses due to lower on-resistance and can be used along with our GaN drivers for AC-DC and DC-DC solutions. Our smart power stages coupled with Point of Loads (POL) and multiphase controllers can provide high-performance power management for baseband units, Remote radio units, and Active antenna units.
