Linley Microprocessor Report: Ceva’S PentaG2 Reduces 5G Power

For its second-generation 5G baseband, Ceva is going down, not up. The original PentaG design already scales to 10Gbps, the maximum speed we expect 5G to reach.
So for PentaG2, the company focused on reducing energy per bit, limiting heat and stretching battery life for its smartphone customers. The new design is also suitable for use beyond phones, in products such as laptop PCs, tablets, cellular hot spots, and automotive telematics. It can scale down to a “lite” configuration that fits into low-data-rate devices such as asset trackers, smart meters, and remote sensors.
