MaxLinear powers outdoor-indoor product for 5G high-band wireless communication

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for wireless and wired infrastructure, industrial, the connected home and multimarket applications, has announced that ZINWELL Corp. has selected MaxLinear´s MxL210x AirPHYâ„¢ wireless transceiver for its ZRA-001 product line, the company said.

Operating within unlicensed radio frequency bands and below the FCC and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) limits for radiated emissions, the MxL210x enables wireless transfer of more than 2 Gigabits per second (Gbps) penetrating through low-E windows and walls.

The ZINWELL ZRA-001 is designed for residential applications. It has two components: an outdoor unit (ODU) attached to the outside of the house and an indoor unit (IDU). The IDU can be easily self-installed to an inside wall or window. This solution means that mobile network operators (MNOs) do not have to drill holes in their customers´ homes to enable service, which speeds up installation time and lowers subscriber acquisition costs. Trials of the ZRA-001 will commence in the second quarter of 2018.

Founded in 1981, ZINWELL has grown to be globally recognized as one of the major Taiwanese manufacturers of MoCA 2.5 ECB/WECBs, Ultra-high Speed Home Networking, Multimedia Networks, Digital Set-top Box, Satellite, CATV and Terrestrial Receiving equipment. With headquarters in Taipei and corporate offices in Hsinchu, ZINWELL sells to three of the top 10 operators in the world. For more information, visit www.zintech.com.tw.
