Samsung selects TriQuint’s RF front-end for Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S

Korea’s Samsung (the world’s second largest handset maker) has selected the complete 3G RF front-end of TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA for its new Samsung Galaxy Tab. This is in addition to Samsung choosing TriQuint’s total 3G RF front-end solution for its flagship smartphone series, Galaxy S.

TriQuint claims that, compared with other 3G WEDGE architectural solutions, its 3G RF front-end offers the lowest current consumption and highest degree of design flexibility, scalability and miniaturization. The solution includes TriQuint’s family of WCDMA TRITIUM PA Duplexer Modules in combination with its linear WEDGE QUANTUM Tx Module.

“We are committed to utilizing our unique in-house technology portfolio to provide customers with integrated innovation and quality,” says Tim Dunn, TriQuint’s VP of Mobile Devices. “In recognition of TriQuint’s commitment to quality, Samsung awarded TriQuint with its Samsung Quality Award for our development efforts related to the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S series.”

TriQuint’s TRITIUM PA Duplexer Module family integrates a duplexer, power amplifier, and an inter-stage filter that supports the major WCDMA bands 1 (TQM676021), 2 (TQM676022), 4 (TQM676024), 5 (TQM676025) and 8 (TQM676028L). The linear QUANTUM Tx Module (TQM6M9014) integrates an EDGE power amplifier, low-pass filtering, and a SP8T antenna switch. The solution is tested and certified with a leading chipset provider/system integrator to optimize the overall system performance. TriQuint says that, together, the TRITIUM family and QUANTUM Tx module demonstrate its breadth of technologies and capabilities in delivering an entire 3G RF solution, from the transceiver to the antenna.

TriQuint claims that its 3G RF solution is one of the most prevalent architectures chosen by leading manufacturers of increasingly complex mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs.
