Qorvo launches multiplexers supporting carrier aggregation for 4G LTE smartphones

Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has launched multiplexers that support challenging carrier aggregation (CA) requirements in 4G LTE smartphones. Based on the firm’s BAW 5 bulk acoustic wave filter technology, the new multiplexers deliver what is claimed to be superior performance for Band 1/3 and Band 25/66 CA deployments.

“Device manufacturers seeking to launch smartphones with advanced CA band combinations face a growing list of challenges,” notes Eric Creviston, president of Qorvo’s Mobile Products group. “Qorvo’s newest multiplexers, using our superior BAW 5 process and advanced packaging technologies, make it easier to meet these CA requirements and quickly launch next-generation handsets,” he adds.

The new BAW 5-based multiplexers deliver low insertion loss, with what is said to be superior in-band isolation and cross-isolation, to enable aggregation of closely spaced LTE bands. The new multiplexers are:

  • The QM25002, which includes all transmit and receive filters required for downlink and uplink CA on Bands 1 and 3 (the most widely used band combination in China).
  • The QM25008, which includes all transmit and receive filters required for downlink and uplink CA on Bands 25 and 66 (for North America). It also supports aggregation of Bands 2 and 66, enabling deployments on all major regional carrier networks.

Qorvo is showcasing its portfolio of RF solutions at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2017) on Stand 2i25 (Hall 2) in Barcelona, Spain (27 February – 2 March).
