Highly integrated products enable operators to cost-effectively implement infrastructure from Ma-MIMO to millimeter wave

    GREENSBORO, NC – June 12, 2018 – Qorvo® (Nasdaq:QRVO), a leading provider of innovative RF solutions that connect the world, today introduced five new power amplifiers and front end modules that further expand its portfolio of RF products for massive MIMO and 5G base stations. These highly integrated, efficient, small-size modules support all frequency bands used for pre-5G and 5G architectures, from 3GHz to 39GHz.

    The market for massive MIMO base station configurations is expected to support USD $1 billion in RF solutions by 2022.1

    Qorvo’s innovative gallium nitride (GaN) technology, with industry-leading performance, efficiency and power, enables transmission of multiple data streams with greater capacity, supporting rapid, cost-effective implementation of 5G networks.

    The new 5G products include two 2-stage power amplifiers, two integrated front end modules (FEMs), and a wideband driver amplifier. Qorvo recently announced two additional amplifiers – the QPF4005 and the QPF4006 – the industry’s first GaN FEMs for 39GHz.

    Roger Hall, general manager of High Performance Solutions at Qorvo, said, “With our products at work in dozens of 5G field trials, Qorvo continues to be a leading enabler of 5G, supporting exponential growth in mobile data. Today’s RF portfolio expansion provides customers with the broadest range of 5G connectivity solutions in sub-6GHz and mmW 5G.”

    Engineering samples of new Qorvo products below are now available to wireless infrastructure customers.
