High Attention on 5G RedCap Chip

As one of the hottest topics in cellular IoT technology in recent years, 5G RedCap has become the focus of the industry. Just this month, China Mobile announced the completion of the world's largest, most comprehensive, and most diverse field trial of 5G RedCap. At the same time, many industry experts believe that "2024 will be the commercial year of 5G RedCap". Yang Guang, a senior analyst at Omdia, said in an analysis report that "the Chinese market is key to the success of 5G RedCap." Therefore, it is very critical to seize the development opportunities of 5G RedCap.

ASR has always attached great importance to the 5G and has introduced 5G RedCap chip that comply with the 3GPP specifications based on its long-term experience in the communication industry. 5G RedCap chip ASR1903 was one of ASR’s important exhibits at MWC24. ASR1903 supports the 5G Rel-17 RedCap specification and is a single chip integrating baseband and RF functions, supporting NR SA/LTE cat4 dual-mode. NR supports 20MHz bandwidth and all frequency bands below 6GHz defined by 3GPP, and supports both 256QAM/64QAM modulation schemes in both uplink and downlink, with maximum downlink and uplink speeds reaching 220 Mbps and 121 Mbps respectively. And it supports energy-saving, SUL, e-DRX, URLLC, 5G LAN, network slicing, and small data transmission in terms of network capabilities.
