OCTBTS 3000

The OCTBTS 3000 is ideal for OEMs who are looking to fill a gap in their product portfolio by getting a complete solution to market with minimal engineering resource, time, and risk. The OCTBTS 3000’s very small footprint makes it easy to miniaturize designs or to make modular products using multiple boards.

The OCTBTS 3000 platform includes an Octasic OCT2224W SoC and an Analog Devices radio transceiver, supporting 2G, 3G, or 4G operation through software. Capacity ranges from 16 to 32 active users depending on the cellular standard.

Software

The OCTBTS 3000 is fully integrated with Octasic’s OCT2224W and proprietary flexiPHY software that provides multi-standard cellular capabilities to developers. Find out more about flexiPHY.
