GREENSBORO, N.C. and HILLSBORO, Ore. – February 4, 2015 – Qorvo, Inc. (Nasdaq: QRVO), a leading provider of RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications, today announced several new high-performance RF filters that provide faster data throughput and longer battery life for next-generation 4G smartphones and other mobile devices. Setting new bars in performance and size, these latest additions to Qorvo's fast-growing line of premium filters leverage the company's proprietary filter technologies to enhance the overall mobile user experience and optimize efficient use of limited spectrum.
"The global transition to 4G is just beginning, and higher filter performance is a critical enabler in LTE and TD-LTE solutions," said Eric Creviston, President of Mobile Products. "Qorvo™ is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the growing need for highly specialized filtering solutions, given our filter technology leadership, broad product portfolio, systems-level expertise, and high volume manufacturing scale."
Industry analysts forecast robust demand for high-performance filters. "Smartphones with more LTE bands and carrier aggregation for higher data rates are pushing OEMs to use more high-performance RF filters and duplexers. We expect the total market for standard and premium RF filters in cellular devices to grow above 25 percent per year from 2014 to 2019," said Christopher Taylor of Strategy Analytics.
As performance requirements tighten and RF complexity increases, Qorvo's proprietary LowDrift™and NoDrift™ filter technologies solve the industry's most challenging LTE system and chipset problems. "LTE-Advanced will usher in more sophisticated carrier aggregation and MIMO techniques in the years ahead, and Qorvo is committed to setting the industry standard for performance and size." said Glen Riley, General Manager of Filter Solutions. "Qorvo is redefining filter performance in small form factors and achieving unmatched temperature stability to extend battery life, improve insertion loss, limit service disruptions and reduce dropped calls."
