Dublin, Feb. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Murata SAW Thermo-Compensated Band 8 Filter In Low Band Front-End Module" report to their offering. In Front-End Filter Market, Murata all along with Broadcom Limited, Qorvo and Skyworks share the leadership in RF components. The company has forged its empire on ceramic passive electronic components and ceramic filter. Today, this old but effective technology is still used. The last acquisition of Peregrine Semiconductor specialized in RF CMOS, allows Murata to enter into the smartphone market. The last one to integrate the front-end module from Murata is Samsung in his last Flagship, the Galaxy S7 with the FAJ15. The module features Murata's thermo-compensated technology. The Front end module is located on the main board of the smartphone. Samsung has proposed different configuration of its LTE front end part. The FAJ15 from Murata was only found in US version of the Galaxy S7. It shared the front end part with Qorvo, and Broadcom. The FAJ15 is dedicated to LTE Low band. It is made with several filter dies, assembled on a ceramic substrate. The filters are either bare dies or packages molded into FEM molding. As piezoelectric for SAW technology, the substrate dies are either LN (Lithium Nobium oxide) or LT (Lithium Tantalum oxide). The FEM contains two SAW technology: STD-SAW (Standard SAW) and TC-SAW (Thermally Compensated SAW). The report only focused on the duplexer for Band 8 LTE integrated in the FEM. The specification of this band required very low thermal drift. Thus thermo-compensated layers are integrated to provide better performance towards thermal changes. Complete chip fabrication processes and cost estimation of the Band 8 component are presented in the report and also a quick comparison on substrate packaging with Qorvo's and Broadcom's FEM.

GREENSBORO, N.C., March 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, has introduced three new solid-state power amplifier (SSPA) modules that further expand the power and frequency range of the company’s Spatium® amplifier family. The modules are optimized for electronic warfare applications, enabling defense customers to use ultra-wideband SSPA technology as an alternative to traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs). “The need for wider bandwidth, higher frequency and higher performance will drive growth for gallium nitride (GaN) in defense applications, with the market approaching $342 million by 2020,” said Asif Anwar, director of Strategy Analytics’ Strategic Technologies Practice. “The Spatium technology with GaN places Qorvo in an ideal position to address defense TWTA replacements without compromising high power and broadband performance.” Spatium products feature ultra-efficient RF power-combining capabilities built on GaN on silicon carbide (SiC) MMIC technology. This creates a highly stable, reliable, high-performance TWTA alternative for demanding airborne, electronic warfare, test and simulation applications. Solid-state Spatium modules have longer service lifetimes than comparable TWTAs, and offer advantages in size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C). Roger Hall, general manager of High Performance Solutions at Qorvo said, “Our new Spatium amplifiers give RF designers unprecedented efficiency with output power from hundreds to thousands of watts. Spatium excels in broadband applications; now solid-state solutions can outperform TWTAs with a much lower total ownership cost.” The new modules include a 2-6 GHz/300-watt unit, a 2-18 GHz/60-watt unit, and a 2-8 GHz/150-watt unit. Each is available in two configurations – as a solo Spatium amplifier building block, or as a Spatium-based rack mountable box with a driver, internal power supply and fan, suitable for bench-top demonstration or laboratory test equipment. The table below outlines specifications. Limited demonstration units are available to qualified defense customers. * The efficiency of the rack mount units is for the Spatium only. Additional information about Qorvo solutions for mission-critical applications can be found here: www.qorvo.com/defense. Qorvo is the leading GaN RF supplier for the defense and cable industries.* Since 1999, Qorvo has been driving GaN research and innovation, offering proven GaN circuit reliability and compact, highly efficient products. Qorvo is a Defense Manufacturing Electronics Agency accredited 1A Trusted Source, having completed the Defense Production Act Title III GaN on SiC program in 2014. The Company remains the only GaN supplier to achieve Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) 9. Qorvo drives the innovation of GaN products for next-generation systems – from DC through Ka-band – that offer robust performance, low maintenance and long operational lifetimes.

BARCELONA, Spain, March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today announced two highly-integrated dual channel switch-LNA modules for base station implementations of massive multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO). When combined with Qorvo’s GaN-based integrated driver and power amplifier module, the dual channel switch-LNA modules provide a complete, highly integrated solution for wireless infrastructure manufacturers seeking to quickly and cost-effectively implement pre-5G massive MIMO networks. Mobile operators are increasing data capacity with the deployment of sub-6 GHz massive MIMO networks. Strategy Analytics predicts that 5G networks using massive MIMO will be operational by 2020 and that there will be approximately 700 million 5G connections by 2025. Massive MIMO allows base stations to transmit multiple streams of data, while beamforming will bring higher gain and power, allowing for greater data capacity. James Klein, President of Infrastructure and Defense at Qorvo, said, “Qorvo is uniquely positioned to deliver complete system solutions that leverage our broad portfolio of highly differentiated products and internally developed technologies. With today’s product announcement, we expand our portfolio of receive and transmit front-end modules for additional frequency bands targeted at pre-5G and 5G wireless infrastructure, in anticipation of more spectrum being made available below 6 GHz.” Qorvo's QPB9318 and QPB9319 are highly integrated dual channel switch-LNA modules that support frequency bands below 5GHz. The dual channel switch-LNA modules pair with Qorvo’s high performance GaN-based QPA2705 to provide a complete massive MIMO RF solution. At IMS 2016, Qorvo demonstrated industry-leading ultra-wideband linearization results with the QPA2705. With Qorvo’s complete solution, operators are able to implement highly efficient, small form-factor massive MIMO transceivers for next-generation base stations. The QPB9318 and QPA2705 are currently shipping in production volumes to large base station OEMs, and samples of the QPB9319 will be available in the June quarter. Qorvo is paving a path to 5G by helping define 5G standards as a delegate to 3GPP and through close collaboration with the leading wireless infrastructure manufacturers, network operators, chipset providers and smartphone manufacturers. Qorvo has helped conduct dozens of 5G field trials and is uniquely positioned to accelerate the transition to 5G with a broad portfolio of innovative RF products covering frequencies ranging from 600 MHz to 80 GHz Qorvo is solving RF complexity and showcasing the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of advanced RF solutions at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017), from February 27 through March 2 in Hall 2, Stand 2i25.
