2.6 Output Power


Table 2-5 describes the AAU5271 output power.

Table 2-5 AAU5271 output power

Frequency Band Maximum Total Transmit Power

Band 38 (2.6 GHz) 2575 to 2615 120 W


Band 41 (2.6 GHz) 2575 to 2635 120 W
Band 40 (2.3 GHz) 2302 to 2400 160 W

2.7 Static Sensitivity


Table 2-6 Static Sensitivity

Frequency Band Static Sensitivity


Band 38 (2.6 GHz) 2575 to 2615 -103.5dBm@1RX
Band 41 (2.6 GHz) 2575 to 2635 -103dBm@1RX
Band 40 (2.3 GHz) 2302 to 2400 -103.5dBm@1RX

As recommended in 3GPP TS 36.104, LTE receiver sensitivity is measured under a 5 MHz channel
bandwidth based on the FRC A1-3 in Annex A.1 standard, where the modulation scheme is QPSK (R =
1/3) and the system bandwidth is 25 resource blocks (RBs).

2.8 Power Consumption


Frequency Band Typical Power Consumption

Band 38 (2.6 GHz) 2575 to 2615 890W


Band 41 (2.6 GHz) 2575 to 2635 820W
Band 40 (2.3 GHz) 2302 to 2400 890W

Typical power consumption is measured when the ambient temperature is 25 °C and the AAU5271 is
100% loaded. The actual typical power consumption has a 10% deviation from this value.
