Qorvo’s RF Fusion front-end module records multiple marquee smartphone designs wins

Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has recorded multiple new smartphone design wins utilizing the newest generation of its RF Fusion RF front-end (RFFE) modules.

Qorvo hence now supports marquee product releases across leading smartphone makers with highly integrated mid/high-band module solutions. The newest RF Fusion includes power amplifier (PA), switch and filter content and leverages the firm’s combination of core capabilities to deliver enhanced performance in a small solution size and reduced footprint. This enables manufacturers to accommodate complex RF content in handsets as the industry begins its transition to 5G.

“Mobile devices now use more than 40 bands and common carrier aggregation band combinations, which is driving an exponential increase in RF front-end complexity,” comments Chris Taylor, director of RF omponent strategies at market research firm Strategy Analytics. “This has led to a shift to integrated RF front ends,” he adds. “Device OEMs want integrated front-end solutions that satisfy operators’ increasingly difficult RF requirements and tight space constraints.”

RF Fusion enables a broad range of use cases, including a comprehensive array of regional carrier aggregation combinations, in a pre-validated RF subsystem. This helps smartphone makers to reduce time to market, optimize their handset stock-keeping unit (SKU) portfolio and improve manufacturing yields, claims Qorvo. The newest generation of RF Fusion leverages the firm’s premium bulk acoustic wave (BAW) and surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter technologies to deliver complete main-path coverage in two placements: the QM77033 low-band module and QM77031 mid/high-band module. The latest design wins also include the QM17001 mid/high-band diplexer and RF8129 envelope-tracking (ET) power management module.

Qorvo is discussing its portfolio of RF front-end solutions and pre-5G and 5G wireless infrastructure at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2019) in Barcelona, Spain (25-28 February).
