The RF module for BSC9131 and BSC9132 based development platforms is a flexible architecture enabling Benetel to supply the module configured to cover all of the major LTE dual frequency band combinations. In addition the module has a 3GPP WCDMA (HSPA+) 10dBM transceiver circuit making it a dual-mode solution.
The LTE circuit architecture is 2x2 MIMO.
Product number PSC913X$F13-0713 is a 13dBM LTE output at each RF connector and operates in either Band 7 or Band 13 via software selection.
The RF module is designed for small cell applications with a JESD207 interface to the BSC913X SoC.
PSC913XRF13-0713 is an FDD RF module that operates in LTE Band 7
and LTE Band 13. The Band 7 up-link is 250-2570 MHz and the
down-link is 2620-2690 MHz. The Band 13 up-link is 777-787 MHz and
the down-link is 746-756 MHz
2x2 LTE MIMO with an output power of 13 dBm on each port
