Qorvo® introduced a line of small-signal products that support the 600 MHz (Band 71) spectrum recently auctioned in the U.S. According to the company, this infrastructure portfolio expansion makes Qorvo the only supplier to address all frequency bands for 5G communications, from sub-6 through 39 GHz.
The new products are linear driver amplifiers that support operation down to 600 MHz: the QPA9805, TQP7M9101, TQP7M9102, TQP7M9103 and TQP7M9105. They complement Qorvo’s broad range of wireless infrastructure products, from linear driver amplifiers and variable gain amplifiers to low noise amplifiers, gain blocks, filters, attenuators, switches and integrated front-end modules.
By operating over broad frequency ranges or having pin-compatible product families, Qorvo’s products save costs by eliminating the need to redesign PCBs or system line-ups. The table shows a partial list of Qorvo products targeted for wireless infrastructure, with the frequency bands they support.
|Frequency Band (GHz)|
|Product Type||Qorvo Part Number||0.6||0.9||2.1||2.6||3.5||4.5||28||39|
Roger Hall, general manager of Qorvo's high performance solutions segment, said, “Only Qorvo supports the full 5G spectrum — including the 600 MHz spectrum recently auctioned in the U.S. Our complete, off-the-shelf portfolio can shorten customers’ time to market to meet consumers’ insatiable demand for more bandwidth and higher data speeds.”
The number of subscriptions for 5G technology is projected to reach 89 million by 2022.
