Qualcomm Technologies Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM), has introduced the Qualcomm RF360 Front End Solution to address cellular radio frequency band fragmentation.
The Qualcomm RF360 also enables a single, global 4G LTE design for mobile devices.
The Qualcomm RF360 solution is designed to reduce power consumption and improve radio performance while reducing the RF front-end footprint inside of a smartphone by up to 50 percent compared to the current generation of devices.
Additionally, the solution reduces design complexity and development costs, allowing OEM customers to develop new multiband, multimode LTE products faster and more efficiently.
Band fragmentation is the biggest obstacle to designing global LTE devices, with 40 cellular radio bands worldwide, according to Qualcomm.
The Qualcomm RF solution comprises a family of chips designed to mitigate this problem while improving RF performance and helping OEMs more easily develop multiband, multimode mobile devices supporting all seven cellular modes, including LTE-FDD, LTE-TDD, WCDMA, EV-DO, CDMA 1x, TD-SCDMA and GSM/EDGE.
