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+) 10 dBm transceiver circuit making it a dual-mode solution.
The LTE circuit architecture is 2x2 MIMO. Product number BSC913XRF13-0413 has a 13 dBm LTE output at each RF connector and operates in either Band 4 or Band 13 via software selection. The RF module is designed for small cell applications with a JESD207 interface to the BSC913X SoC.
BSC913XRF13-0413 is an FDD RF module which operates in LTE Band 4 and LTE Band 13. The Band 4 up-link frequency is 1710-1755 MHz and the downlink frequency is 2110-2155 MHz. The Band 13 up-link frequency is 777-787MHz and downlink frequency is 746-756MHz.
