Samsung Selects TriQuint for its Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S Series
TriQuint’s complete RF front-end modules which offer winning performance in power consumption and scalability will be used in Samsung’s 3G Galaxy Tab and flagship smartphone series, Galaxy S.
TriQuint Semiconductor, a leading RF front-end product manufacturer and foundry services provider, has announced that the world’s second largest handset manufacturer, Samsung, has selected TriQuint for its complete 3G RF front-end for its popular, new Samsung Galaxy Tab.
This is in addition to Samsung choosing TriQuint’s total 3G RF front-end solution for its flagship smartphone series, Galaxy S.
The TriQuint solution offers the lowest current consumption and highest degree of design flexibility, scalability and miniaturization compared to other 3G WEDGE architectural solutions. The solution includes TriQuint’s family of WCDMA TRITIUM PA-Duplexer Modules in combination with its linear WEDGE QUANTUM Tx Module.
“We are honored to have been chosen by Samsung to provide the RF front-end for their innovative Galaxy Tab in addition to the Galaxy S smartphone series,” said Tim Dunn, VP of Mobile Devices at TriQuint. “We are committed to utilizing our unique in-house technology portfolio to provide customers with integrated innovation and quality. In recognition of TriQuint’s commitment to quality, Samsung awarded TriQuint with its Samsung Quality Award for our development efforts related to the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S series.”
TriQuint’s TRITIUM PA Duplexer Module family integrates a duplexer, power amplifier, and an interstage filter that supports the following major WCDMA bands: Band 1, 2, 4, 5, & 8. The linear QUANTUM Tx Module integrates an EDGE power amplifier, low-pass filtering, and a SP8T antenna switch. The solution is tested and certified with a leading chipset provider/system integrator to optimize the overall system performance.
Together, the TRITIUM family and QUANTUM Tx module are an excellent demonstration of TriQuint’s broad-breadth of technologies and capabilities in delivering an entire 3G RF solution, from the transceiver to the antenna, and underscores TriQuint’s leadership in 3G/4G front-end technologies and integrated solutions. TriQuint’s 3G RF solution is one of the most prevailing architectures chosen by top manufacturers of increasingly complex mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs.
