Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, unveiled its first impedance tuner, the RF1105, further expanding the company's industry-leading portfolio of antenna control solutions. RFMD's programmable RF1105 functions as a tuner sub-system across all LTE frequency bands up to 2.7GHz, providing antenna feed matching over a wide frequency range.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, unveiled its first power doubler amplifier in a multi-chip module to support the requirements of the new data over cable service interface specification (DOCSIS) 3.1.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, announced that it has commenced high-volume production of multiple new power amplifiers (PAs) and power management integrated circuits (ICs) that incorporate RFMD's envelope tracking (ET) technology.
RFMD, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency solutions, introduced the world's first 6-inch GaN-on-Silicon Carbide (SiC) wafers for manufacturing RF power transistors for both military and commercial use. The company is converting all GaN production and development to 6-inch diameter wafers using its existing high-volume, 6-inch GaAs foundry to reduce platform cost for the growing GaN device market.
RF Micro Devices, Inc. announced it is shipping production volumes of its power amplification solutions that are compatible with Broadcom's 5 G WiFi chips. RFMD developed the RFFM82x5 (2.4 GHz) and RFFM85x5 (5 GHz) FEMs with Broadcom's 5 G WiFi chips, which are based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard. The combined solution delivers faster throughput and expanded range for an enhanced user experience.
RF Micro Devices, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components, introduced the highly-integrated RFFM4501E front end module (FEM) for 802.11ac notebook and mobile equipment applications. RFMD’s newest WiFi FEM meets or exceeds the system requirements for 802.11ac connectivity in the 5.150 to 5.850 GHz frequency band.
The RFSW1012 is a single-pole double-through (SPDT) switch designed for applications requiring very low insertion loss and high power handling capability. The excellent linearity performance of the RFSW1012 makes it ideal for use in LTE, WCDMA, and CDMA applications.
The RFSW6124 is an SPDT RF switch featuring a symmetric design for exceptional isolation. Typical applications for this GaAs pHEMT switch include cellular base stations and other communications systems requiring high linearity and power-handling capability.
RFMD’s new RFFM8xxx series provide complete integrated solutions in single front end modules (FEMs) for WiFi systems. The ultra-small form factor and integrated matching minimizes the layout area in the customer's application and greatly reduces the number of external components.
