Qorvo begins high-volume shipments to support March-quarter launch of marquee Android smartphone platform

Qorvo Inc (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has been selected by a leading global smartphone manufacturer to expand its support of a marquee Android smartphone platform launching in the March quarter. Qorvo has broadly expanded its participation in this device to include RF Fusion front-end modules, diversity receive modules, power amplifier duplexers (PADs), switches, impedance tuners, low-noise amplifiers (LNAs), duplexers and filters.

"We are leveraging Qorvo's expanding capabilities to introduce new enabling products and technologies, and we look forward to increasing our participation in additional marquee devices launching this year," says Eric Creviston, president of Qorvo's Mobile Products Group. 

The RF solutions selected to support the marquee smartphone platform launch include the QM78064 high-band RF Fusion module, the QM63001A diversity receive module, the TQQ1013 NoDrift SAW (surface acoustic wave) duplexer, the 885067 Wi-Fi coexistence filter, the TQF6260 B30 PAD, the QM14003 high-band LTE LNA, the RF1135 impedance tuner, the 885060 diplexer, and the QM13113 QM12023 and RF1646 switches for antenna control solutions.

The QM78064 high-band RF Fusion is a multimode high-band module offering what is claimed to be best-in-class linearity for TD-LTE and full support for TD-LTE intra-band carrier aggregation for enhanced uplink performance. RF Fusion modules incorporate all major transmit and receive functionality into highly integrated split-band placements.

The QM63001A is a highly integrated diversity receive module supporting 2x and 3x downlink carrier aggregation to deliver enhanced data rate performance in a highly compact form factor. It leverages proprietary LowDrift filter technology to support bands 25 + 66, 3, 7 and 39 and features Qorvo's switches and LNAs in a compact 4.0mm x 2.7mm form factor. The firm's recently launched family of diversity receive modules enable high-performance downlink carrier aggregation, enhance receive sensitivity, reduce product footprint and optimize antenna configurations, while increasing network efficiency and improving the consumer user experience.

The TQQ1013 NoDrift SAW duplexer is designed to meet the strict band 13 NS07 rejection requirements mitigating signal migration in the public safety frequency band.

The 885067 Wi-Fi coexistence filter enables concurrent Wi-Fi and LTE operation with what is claimed to be industry-leading insertion loss in a 1.1mm x 0.9mm package. Qorvo's Wi-Fi coexistence filters leverage proprietary LowDrift BAW technology to address the design challenges related to interference between Wi-Fi and the adjacent LTE bands (7, 40 and 41) in China, North America and elsewhere. All proprietary NoDrift and NoDrift premium BAW filters are optimized to combine high performance and temperature stability while solving critical coexistence challenges unaddressed by competing technologies.

The TQF6260 PAD supports FDD-LTE band 30 while meeting the critical requirements for rejection of satellite radio interference in a compact 4.0mm x 2.5mm package. 

The QM14003 high-band LTE LNA features a bypass switch and delivers an optimal combination of gain, linearity, size and current consumption to improve sensitivity in a highly compact form factor.
The RF1135 configurable impedance tuner enables multiple tuning architectures to maximize performance and reduce current consumption.

The 885060 diplexer enables a single antenna to support both Wi-Fi and cellular bands and delivers what is claimed to be best-in-class insertion loss and rejection in a 1.7mm x 1.3mm form factor.

The QM13113, QM12023 and RF1646 switches deliver an optimal combination of high linearity, superior isolation, and low loss. The QM13113 is a single-pole three-throw switch optimized for high-performance antenna tuning applications; the QM12023 is an addressable receive routing switch for carrier aggregation; and the RF1646 is a compact routing switch for high-performance RF port transfer and antenna selection.

Qorvo is showcasing its expanding portfolio of RF solutions for smartphones, tablets and other high-performance mobile data devices at the 2016 GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain (22-25 February).
