RF Products

Advanced RF front end solutions for high-performance 5G devices.

Our RF solutions are designed to deliver blazing fast 5G.

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.

RF Switch and Switch Module

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.

Diversity receive module

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.

Filter products

Our extensive portfolio of high-performance, embedded and discrete duplexers, diplexers, extractors, and acoustic filters include Qualcomm® ultraBAW, Qualcomm® ultraSAW filter technology, SAW and TC-SAW filters.

Low noise amplifier

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.

Antenna tuning solutions

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.

Power Amplifier Modules

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.

Power trackers

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

Superior RF front-end solutions and micro-acoustic RF 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 Qualcomm® ultraBAW, Qualcomm® ultraSAW filter technology, SAW and TC-SAW filters. They’re designed to help address 5G design challenges while improving RF performance to help manufacturers more easily develop power-efficient 5G multiband, multimode mobile devices in sleek form factors and industrial designs.

Addressing 5G multimode RF complexity

5G poses a new set of challenges to OEMs designing mobile devices for the 5G era. With wider frequency ranges, wider carrier bandwidths, increasing antenna count, mmWave complexity, and an exploding number of band and mode combinations, OEMs need innovative, next-generation RF solutions to build sleek, power-efficient 5G mobile devices while operators increase network capacity and coverage.
