A macrocell is a cell in a network of mobile phones that provides radio coverage that serves as an authoritative cellular site (tower, antenna or mast).

In general, macrocells offer greater coverage than microcells. Macro-cell antennas are placed on earth masts, roofs, and other existing structures at a height that provides a clear view of the surrounding buildings and terrain.

Macrocellular stem cells generally have an output power of several tens of watts. The efficiency of macrocells can be increased by increasing the ability of the transceiver.

A macrocell is a cell covered by radio stations in cellular networks. The coverage distance depends on the frequency and bandwidth of the signal, as well as physical obstacles in the area.

On the other hand, the macrocellular antennas must be correctly mounted on masts, roofs, or other existing structures and at heights for a bright and unobstructed view of the environment.

Its effectiveness can be increased by increasing the work rate of the transceiver. Because this type of cell offers the broadest coverage area, it is placed at stations along highways and rural areas where large areas rarely have service within a few kilometers.


The term macrocell is used to analyze the broadest range of cell sizes. Macrocells are found in rural areas or on highways. On a smaller cell surface, the microcell is used in a low populated urban area.

Picocells are used for areas compact than microcells, such as a large office, shopping center, or train station. Currently, the smallest coverage area can be implemented using a femtocell house or a small office.

Macrocell Matrices in ASIC

A macrocellular matrix is ​​an approach to the design and production of ASIC. This is a small step in an array of doors that would otherwise be similar.


Instead of a simple assembly matrix of logic gates, a macrocell matrix is ​​an assembly matrix of higher logic functions such as flip-flops, ALU functions, registers, etc.

These logic functions are placed in the correct preset positions and performed in a slice, commonly called the central division.

The creation of a circuit with a specific purpose is obtained by adding interconnected metal chips in the main segment at the end of the production process. It allows the function of the chip to be adjusted as desired.
