The Open RF Association has been working on its vision to enable wireless device OEMs to benefit from maximum RF front end choices across chipset platforms providing lower costs, highest performance, reduced time-to-market and optimized inventory. To learn more about the association, everything RF interviewed Kevin Schoenrock, President of the Open RF Association.
As a leading developer of automated test and measurement systems that help engineers solve some of the world’s toughest challenges, NI will work with OpenRF to address the interoperability challenges facing the 5G ecosystem.
OpenRF members are jointly developing an open framework to standardize hardware and software interfaces without restricting innovation, so that 5G equipment OEMs can benefit from the time to market, cost, performance, and supply chain.
OpenRF Register Map Working Group is creating a register map framework to maximize configurability and effectiveness of the RF front end. The agreement outlines the framework for OpenRF and the MIPI Alliance to engage in disclosure and feedback interactions of the MIPI RFFE specification and the OpenRF Register Map Templates.
The OpenRF Alliance and the MIPI Alliance recently announced the signing of a Cooperation Framework (Liaison) Agreement to jointly promote the design of 5G device radio frequency front-end (RFFE) modules and the intercommunication of technology-related projects to achieve design optimization.
