Qorvo joins China Mobile 5G Innovation Center

Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) says that it is the first RF supplier to join the China Mobile 5G Innovation Center — an alliance created to develop 5G solutions for China (the world's largest wireless communications market). The center is driving the development of 5G end-to-end capabilities with partners for applications including self-driving cars, industrial connectivity and virtual reality.

According to Strategy Analytics, the number of 5G connections will reach 690 million by 2025, with more than 300 million 5G handsets (including a substantial number in China).

Qorvo says that its membership of the China Mobile 5G Innovation Center complements its broad range of 5G initiatives. The firm is helping to define 5G standards as a delegate to 3GPP (the 3rd Generation Partnership Program) and has supported more than twenty 5G field trials with global wireless infrastructure companies. The 5G standard is expected to utilize spectrum ranging from 600MHz to at least 80GHz. Qorvo reckons that its expertise in advanced module packaging and steerable antenna arrays will be essential in developing RF solutions for 5G.

"This is a unique opportunity to engage with the world's largest mobile operator and its ecosystem partners," comments Eric Creviston, president of Qorvo's Mobile Products Group. "By participating in development at the Center's Open Labs and in field trials, our goal is to accelerate the creation and delivery of market-leading 5G solutions."

Qorvo says that its RF solutions simplify design, reduce product footprint, conserve power, improve system performance and accelerate the adoption of carrier aggregation. The firm combines systems-level expertise, broad manufacturing scale, and what is claimed to be  the industry's most comprehensive product and technology portfolio to help manufacturers accelerate the delivery of next-generation LTE, LTE-A and IoT (Internet of Things) products.
