Industry’s First High-Power BAW Filter for Migration to 5G

Qorvo has introduced the smallest Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) filter that can handle up to 5 Watts of RF average input power, and up to 40 Watts of peak power. The QPQ1300 leverages Qorvo’s robust, solidly mounted resonator (SMR) BAW technology, which supports the highly reliable thermal power dissipation required for massive MIMO infrastructure equipment. At 5 x 5 x 1 mm, it also represents a 90 percent saving in space over ceramic filters. It is optimized for a frequency range from 2575 to 2635 MHz, a sub-band of Band 41. Prototype samples of the QPQ1300 are available now to qualified customers.

Telecom providers are implementing massive MIMO equipment to boost LTE networks and prepare for 5G performance in large traffic areas. This results in additional capacity and better signal quality, and improves usage of the existing network spectrum. The QPQ1300 solves reliability, assembly, test and space constraint challenges involved in designing massive MIMO telecom infrastructure for 5G migration.

The QPQ1300 filter expands Qorvo’s extensive line of advanced BAW filters for base stations, which solve difficult interference and coexistence challenges worldwide. They also enable operators and manufacturers to deliver higher speeds and greater bandwidth with more efficient use of existing spectrum.
