Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has introduced a line of small-signal products that support the 600MHz/Band 71 spectrum recently auctioned in the USA. Qorvo says that this expansion of its infrastructure portfolio makes it the only supplier to address all frequency bands for 5G communications, from sub-6GHz through 39GHz.
The new products (the QPA9805, TQP7M9101, TQP7M9102, TQP7M9103 and TQP7M9105) are linear driver amplifiers that support operation down to 600MHz. They complement Qorvo’s range of wireless infrastructure solutions, from linear driver amplifiers and variable gain amplifiers to low-noise amplifiers, gain blocks, filters, attenuators, switches and integrated front-end modules.
Qorvo says that, by operating over broad frequency ranges or having pin-compatible product families, its products enable customers to save costs by eliminating the need to re-design PCBs or system lineups.
“Our complete, off-the-shelf portfolio can shorten customers’ time to market to meet consumers’ insatiable demand for more bandwidth and higher data speeds,” says Roger Hall, general manager of Qorvo High Performance Solutions. The number of subscriptions for 5G technology is projected to accelerate over the next several years, reaching 89 million by 2022.
