Qorvo Drives Deployment of 5G Networks with 28 GHz mmWave Solutions

Qorvo has announced the commercial availability of four high-performance 28 GHz RF products for 5G base stations. Qorvo’s optimized architectures leverage the company’s field-proven Gallium Nitride on Silicon Carbide (GaN-on-SiC) and Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) process technologies to deliver leading-edge performance in miniaturized product footprints.

The 28 GHz offerings include the QPC1000 phase shifter, which integrates phase resolution with the ability to switch between transmit/receive functions, two transmit products - the TGA4030-SM GaAs medium-power amplifier/multiplier and the TGA2594 GaN-on-SiC power amplifier; and the QPA2628 GaAs low-noise amplifier. The complete suite of 28 GHz transmit and receive solutions improves power efficiency and reduces size requirements to help telecom equipment providers build out 5G trial systems and accelerate the deployment of full millimeter wave 5G base station networks.

According to Research firm Mobile Experts, the deployment of 5G will enable mobile operators to deliver mobile data more cost effectively. They estimate the cost of delivering a megabit per second of LTE network capacity to be $1,000. 5G is expected to reduce operator costs significantly.

Qorvo wireless infrastructure products will be showcased at the 2017 International Microwave Symposium in Honolulu, Hawaii, June 4-9, in booth #1510.
