Qorvo Ships 100 Million RF Devices for 5G


5G Portfolio enables customers to use beamforming with MIMO base stations to achieve higher data capacity and indoor penetration using sub-6GHz frequencies

RF company Qorvo has announced that it has shipped over 100 million 5G wireless infrastructure components since January 2018. It released the news at this week's Mobile World Congress 2019, February 25-28, in Barcelona.

Qorvo’s 5G portfolio includes solutions for both the receive and transmit RF front end, enabling customers to use beamforming with massive multiple-in/multiple-out (MIMO) base stations to achieve higher data capacity, wider coverage, and indoor penetration using sub-6 GHz frequencies. The installation of new 5G networks using massive MIMO architectures have created demand for new products supporting higher frequencies and increased integration. Qorvo’s portfolio includes dual-channel low noise amplifiers (LNAs) integrated with high-power-handling switches, high linearity transmit pre-drivers, and final stage power amplifiers (PAs).

Qorvo’s GaN-based PAs for all sub-6Gz 5G bands feature fully integrated Doherty solutions that support the higher frequency, small size, weight, power consumption and thermal management requirements for 5G equipment.

Roger Hall, general manager, Qorvo High Performance Solutions, said: “Qorvo is enabling mobile operators to enhance their existing network capacity and transition to 5G with minimal effort. Our technology leadership with massive MIMO based on beamforming is revolutionizing the base station market and accelerating the path to 5G.”

New Qorvo products that are available now to wireless infrastructure customers include the QPB9337 Dual-Channel Switch LNA module, the QPL9057 Ultra-Low NF LNA, and the QPA3503 Doherty Power Amplifier module.
