Qualcomm Technologies has a comprehensive portfolio of tightly integrated RF solutions that includes multimode, multiband RF transceivers and Qualcomm® RF Front End (RFFE) products. Our advanced architectures, process technologies, and packaging advancements support long battery life and superior coverage—helping us create highly integrated, high-performance Modem-RF Systems for the 5G era.
Our high-performance, integrated and discrete RF switches build on proprietary layer transfer technology to deliver high linearity and low insertion loss for advanced 5G dual-connectivity (EN-DC) architectures.
Our diversity receive modules (DRx modules) combine switches, filters and low-noise amplifiers into a module, providing a highly integrated, user-friendly solution for implementing high-order diversity receive paths for advanced 5G multimode architectures.
Our extensive portfolio of high-performance, embedded and discrete duplexers, diplexers, extractors, and acoustic filters include BAW, Qualcomm® ultraSAW filter technology, ultraSAW and TC-SAW filters.
Our extensive portfolio of integrated and discrete low noise amplifiers (LNAs) is designed to support high performance receive and diversity receive chains in advanced multi-mode, multi-band designs.
Our comprehensive multi-tier portfolio of antenna performance enhancement technologies includes Qualcomm AI-Enhanced Signal Boost, the world’s first AI antenna tuning technology that intelligently detects hand grips around the phone and keeps 5G multimode devices fine-tuned for fewer dropped calls, better coverage, and longer battery life.
Advanced tunability allows OEMs to design sleek smartphones and tablets with high signal performance, wide frequency range, and extensive band support.
We have an extensive range of 5G multiband, multimode power amplifier (PA) modules for global design architectures in all tiers. Our PA modules bring together multiplexers, filters, RF switches, and LNAs to allow highly integrated transmit and receive chains and optimized envelope tracking for premium RF performance while helping to reduce the manufacturer’s time-to-launch.
Our cutting-edge envelope tracking (ET) solution for the next generation of ultra-fast mobile devices includes the Qualcomm® QET7100, our 7th generation wideband envelope tracker enhances power efficiency up to 30% compared to state-of-the-art alternative technologies. This is essential to the design of a powerful new generation of 5G devices with the all-day battery life we all expect. The new tracker also uses less space and works with both 4G and 5G – all of which allows for sleeker devices providing a cost-optimized solution in value-tier RF front-ends.
QUALCOMM RFFE FILTERS
Qualcomm Technologies offers an extensive portfolio of RF front-end (RFFE) micro-acoustic filter products comprised of high performance embedded and discrete duplexers, diplexers, extractors, and acoustic filters including BAW, Qualcomm® ultraSAW filter technology, SAW and TC-SAW filters.
