Qorvo® RF Fusion™ Wins Multiple Marquee Smartphone Designs

Breakthrough RF front end solution gains broad industry adoption as manufacturers pave the way for global 5G deployment

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qorvo® (QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today announced multiple new smartphone design wins utilizing the newest generation of its RF Fusion™ RF front end (RFFE) modules. With these latest wins, Qorvo now supports marquee product releases across leading smartphone manufacturers with highly integrated mid-/high-band module solutions. The newest RF Fusion includes PA, switch and filter content and leverages Qorvo’s unique combination of core capabilities to deliver enhanced performance in a small solution size and reduced footprint. This enables manufacturers to accommodate complex RF content in handsets as the industry begins its transition to 5G.

“Mobile devices now use more than 40 bands and common carrier aggregation band combinations, which is driving an exponential increase in RF front end complexity. This has led to a shift to integrated RF front ends,” said Chris Taylor, Director of RF Component Strategies at Strategy Analytics. “Device OEMs want integrated front-end solutions that satisfy operators’ increasingly difficult RF requirements and tight space constraints.”

Eric Creviston, President of Qorvo’s Mobile Products Group, said, “We are delighted by the broad industry adoption of our BAW-based, next generation RF Fusion module. Qorvo has secured design wins across leading smartphone manufacturers. With Qorvo’s unique capabilities in technologies including high-performance BAW and SAW filters, tuning, switching, power management and advanced packaging, we are extremely well positioned to help manufacturers continue to expand their 4G portfolios while successfully navigating the transition to 5G.”

RF Fusion enables a broad range of use cases, including a comprehensive array of regional carrier aggregation combinations, in a pre-validated RF subsystem. This helps smartphone manufacturers reduce time to market, optimize their handset SKU portfolio and improve manufacturing yields. The newest generation of RF Fusion™ leverages Qorvo's premium BAW and SAW filter technologies to deliver complete main path coverage in two placements: the QM77033 low band module and QM77031 mid-high band module. The latest design wins also include the QM17001 mid-high band diplexer and RF8129 envelope-tracking (ET) power management module.
