Qorvo launches first 5G RF front end

Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has launched what it claims is the first 5G-capable RF front end (RFFE) for smartphones, laptops, tablets and other wireless mobile devices. The firm says that the highly integrated QM19000 RFFE – which has been developed in collaboration with a leading global chipset provider – delivers high linearity, ultra-low latency and high throughput to meet or exceed the developing requirements of upcoming 5G applications.

Qorvo is helping to define 5G standards as a delegate to 3GPP and through close collaboration with wireless infrastructure manufacturers, network operators, chipset providers and smartphone makers. The firm has helped to conduct dozens of 5G field trials, and reckons that it is positioned to accelerate the transition to 5G with a broad portfolio of RF products spanning frequencies from 600MHz to 80GHz.

Strategy Analytics forecasts that 5G networks will be operational by 2020 and that by 2022 about 25% of new subscriptions in North America will feature 5G.

“Qorvo is leveraging our industry-leading product and technology portfolio for ultra-high, high, mid, and low cellular frequency bands,” says Eric Creviston, president of Qorvo’s Mobile Products group. “We are building more functionality into our RF solutions by combining our BAW, TC-SAW and SAW filters, our high-throw-count switches and our multi-mode, multi-band power amplifiers,” he adds. “We are enthusiastic about the broadening set of opportunities for Qorvo in ultra-high-speed 4G LTE, LTE-A and 5G connectivity.”

Qorvo is showcasing its portfolio of RF front ends at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017) on Stand 2i25 (Hall 2) in Barcelona, Spain (27 February – 2 March).
