Power Amplifier from Qorvo to Power Qualcomm C-V2X Vehicle Connectivity Platform

Qorvo will be providing the front-end power amplifier (PA) for the Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) Reference Design from Qualcomm. Designed to enhance travel safety consciousness and improve driver assistance, the new Qorvo GaAs HBT PA is the only PA announced to support C-V2X. The solution is designed to offer industry-leading performance, with higher linear output power and improved efficiency to lower thermal conditions required for automotive applications using C-V2X.

C-V2X is designed to support active safety and help enhance situational awareness by detecting and exchanging information using low latency direct transmission in the 5.9 GHz ITS band for Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) situations with no need for cellular subscription or any network assistance. It is defined by the 3GPP Release 14 specifications including PC5-based direct communications, with a clear evolution path towards 5G New Radio (5GNR).

Qorvo products designed to solve the toughest automotive RF challenges will be showcased during CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 9-12.
