Qorvo®, a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, has announced multiple new smartphone design wins utilizing the newest generation of its RF Fusion RF front end (RFFE) modules. With these latest wins, Qorvo now supports marquee product releases across leading smartphone manufacturers with highly integrated mid-/high-band module solutions. The newest RF Fusion includes PA, switch and filter content and leverages Qorvo’s unique 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. This has led to a shift to integrated RF front ends,” said Chris Taylor, Director of RF Component Strategies at Strategy Analytics. “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 manufacturers reduce time to market, optimize their handset SKU portfolio and improve manufacturing yields. The newest generation of RF Fusion™ leverages Qorvo’s premium BAW and 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.
