A BETTER WAY
The Eridan MIRACLE module has the potential to improve performance for every connected device in the world.
Switched circuits are inherently efficient.
The MIRACLE module operates at 40-60% power efficiency, versus 5-20% for linear amplifier-based systems.
This is because our system takes full advantage of an amplifier’s switch mode.
By incorporating switch mode, 2-5x more of the energy our transceivers use ends up as wireless signal, not waste heat. The result is:
- lower operational costs for network equipment
- simplified equipment designs including:
- smaller power cabinets
- lower waste heat management requirements.
With 2-4x more data in the same bandwidth.
Our signal precision allow more bits to be encoded into the same signal via 16k QAM and beyond. Since the signal is cleaner, more data can be transferred across a further distance.
Today’s wireless networks are currently designed to carry 6 to 8 bits at a time, via multiple waveforms in the same frequency. The MIRACLE module can place 14 or more bits in the same bandwidth.
As a result, network operators can carry more data without increasing their spectrum usage.
Making equipment lighter and less expensive to install.
Since the MIRACLE module is more power efficient, it does not require a specialized power source or a giant heat sink, two common pain points in the installation process.
Typical linear transmitters transfer the majority of their power directly into the required heat sink. This means they also require a specialized power source to overcome the inefficiency.
These pieces of equipment are not only unattractive but also expensive to install. Our module solves both problems and can provide 3-5x lower installation costs.
The Eridan MIRACLE RFFE module has been designed from the ground up to eliminate design tradeoffs, using the latest advances in technology.
What is a DevKit?
DevKits are laboratory evaluation models of the MIRACLE Power Transceiver. They enable you to experience the capabilities and performance characteristics of our new transceiver architecture.
How do I order a DevKit?
To order a DevKit, please fill out the order request form, linked above. DevKits are $5000 per unit, payable via check, wire transfer or credit card. Please note that the DevKits are export controlled, so you’ll have to certify that you’re the final user of the units you order.
When will MIRACLE production units be available?
We expect the first production units of the MIRACLE module to be available in small quantities in early 2021.
